Mental Health for the Public Health Professional

About the Event: 

Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, public health professionals have experienced a great deal of stress, anxiety, and fear - both in terms of interacting with the public and in working in high-risk situations. For many public health professionals, these experiences have elevated the importance of understanding the principles of mental health and acquiring skills to better support their communities and strengthen their own well-being. Through the Mental Health for the Public Health training, participants will gain an understanding of the foundations of mental health, identify mental health challenges from multiple public health perspectives, and develop a process to build and maintain relationships with community public and mental health partners. Participants will gain practical implementation tools and identify mental health resources for use in their personal and professional lives.
