One in five adults experience mental illness every year, yet fewer than half of those receive treatment. These issues affect people from all walks of life – no one is immune to psychological distress. Although mental illness is fairly common, sufferers often feel too embarrassed to seek help. This can ultimately have devastating consequences – mental illness lessens an individual’s quality of life and can even result in suicide.
On September 1st, GTH offered a specialized 4 R’s Lunch & Learn webinar where participants learned about Suicide. During this training, you will specifically learn how to recognize the signs of suicide, relate to and help those struggling, and reveal a starting point for care.
