Workshop: Recognizing Common Mental Health Issues

Recognizing Common Mental Health Issues in Others Workshop

Recognizing the Mental Health Issues in Others is a training workshop that will help a non-therapist recognize basic signs and symptoms of the most commonly found mental illnesses and disorders. Being able to recognize these basic signs can make a significant different in how a situation or an individual is managed, particularly for those in public safety and responder roles. The response to an individual with one specific disorder may need to be completely different than the response to someone with a different disorder. Knowing the right response and the best way to interact could mean the difference between escalation or a successful interaction. While attendees of this workshop won’t be able to perform a full assessment on an individual the way a clinician would, this course will teach attendees what to look for and how some disorders affect the thoughts and perceptions of things around them. With this information, attendees will be better equipped to use the right type of response to the behavior associated with each disorder.
