IMMEDIATE SUPPORT SKILLS (ISS) FOR COMMON MENTAL HEALTH CONCERNS
EVENT #: 47090
This 2-day seminar-workshop is designed to train participants toward becoming the first line of responders for individuals who are developing and experiencing mental health problems but are reluctant to seek professional help. Through lectures, discussions, and simulations, it aims to enhance knowledge and skills in identifying and responding to early signs, symptoms, and risk factors of mental disturbances and developing proactive strategies that can prevent more serious mental health problems of others as well as of their own.
Those who are part of the community with interest in providing mental and social health services are most welcome in this seminar-workshop (e.g. college/university educators and leaders, human resources professionals, nurses/physicians, public safety personnel, social workers, volunteers, faith community members and leaders).
