HEALTH CARE BENEFITS
One in every five Americans (52.9 million people) experience mental illness each year. The signs of someone struggling with mental health are often subtle, leaving many conditions undetected and therefore undiagnosed and untreated. It’s important to not only recognize these signs in ourselves but in our family, friends, and colleagues so that we can give them the support they need when they need it.
Recognizing this gap in care and the results from the 2021 Clergy Well-Being Survey showing a steady decline in mental and emotional health, Wespath is offering two First Aid for Mental Health live webinars. Leading the two-part training is Chris White, an international UK government hostage and crisis negotiator and First Aid for Mental Health trainer. This training will teach you how to identify and understand mental health challenges with empathy, and without judgment.
Session One teaches the foundational concepts of mental health, the ability to identify when you or someone else may have mental health needs that require assistance, and the skills to start a conversation and get them the help they need.
Session Two dives deeper into external influences, stress, vulnerability, and ways in which our thoughts, feelings and behaviors are impacted every day. It provides practical methods for how to manage ourselves and others in crisis.
