Mental Health 8-hour Specialty Training

Monday, April 29th — Virtual Mental Health Specialty Training from 9:00am-5:00pm


Mental Health – Mental Disorders are biologically based brain disorders that can greatly interfere with a person’s thinking, feeling, mood, ability to relate to others and cope with the demands of life. Like cancer or diabetes, mental illness is a medical condition that may improve or worsen based on care and treatment. Individuals may behave or communicate in ways that seem confusing to you and others. During this training you will learn more about different types of mental illness and how to care for those individuals. We will cover topics like Trauma, Suicide, Communication and Crisis Management. We will also help to dispel the many myths and stigma related to mental illness.
