How to Create a Positive Impact in your Community

According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) in 2018, 1 in 5 adults experienced mental illness in some form. Accurate information and resources are not always available and can be hard to find. San Diego Public Library saw a need in their community to be this resource and decided to act on it. Their goal was to train their staff in Mental Health First Aid and provide other resources and training to members of their community.

These efforts have benefited their community and have better equipped their staff with the tools they need to effectively work with individuals who are living with mental health issues.

Join us for this webinar as Joseph Miesner discusses:

  • How Mental Health First Aid provides better understanding of mental illnesses and encourages empathy for those who are suffering
  • How to help staff create a "tool kit" of techniques to better assist patrons who are experiencing mental health issues
  • Ways to bring additional services to your library through partnerships

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn more about this important topic and how you can implement these principles within your library and community.
