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.
EMPOWER yourself by learning how to create a safe environment for those struggling with mental illness in this 2 hour online training with Dr. Matt Stanford. This course will equip you with the techniques for identifying mental illness, developing safe and effective situational responses, and building a network to quickly connect those in distress with professional care.ARVE Error: Mode: lazyload not available (ARVE Pro not active?), switching to normal mode
