Outreach Wellness Learning Webinars: Mental Health Crisis
October 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
While understanding the differences between mental health and the diagnosis of a mental illness, it is important to understand that individuals can experience a crisis in any mental state that they are in. A crisis is understood to be “the perception or experience of an event or situation as an intolerable difficulty that exceeds the person’s current resources and coping mechanisms.”
Through this training participants will:
1. Describe types of mental health crisis and how to assess for risk of harm.
2. Identify effective coping strategies to empower individuals to seek help.
3. Demonstrate ways to effectively respond to a person in crisis
