This alarming fact underscores the urgent need for more effective mental health interventions and support systems within rural settings. This session aims to shed light on the critical intersection of masculinity, mental health, and rural life, and explore how everyday places—such as doctors' offices, churches, workplaces, and community gatherings—can become gateways to meaningful conversations and interventions. Key topics will include: Understanding the barriers to mental health support for rural men, including stigma, limited resources, and cultural norms. Strategies for healthcare providers to initiate mental health conversations and recognize warning signs during routine visits. The role of churches and faith-based organizations in providing support and breaking down the stigma associated with mental health issues. Integrating mental health awareness and support into workplaces, especially in industries predominant in rural areas. The importance of Integrated Behavioral Health positions in creating a holistic approach to health care in rural settings. Trainer Andrew Jordan Thayer, PhD, LP

The misrepresentation of Indigenous Americans continues to exist in our school systems, history books, classes, national dialogue, media, and statistics. The result is a direct blow to the positive cultural developmental trajectory of Indigenous youth.  Despite this, Indigenous people survive and many thrive because of the strength, resilience, and responsiveness to change that our ancestors passed down.  We need to teach the current and generations to come, that we cannot doubt ourselves, we come from a legacy of survival that cannot be questioned (bolojko). Learning Objectives Increase knowledge of the strengths and positives of Indigenous youth and communities Identify 5 components of Genocide Explain how cultural identity and suicide prevention are connected. Identify 5 strategies to strengthen resilience and instill hope.

Series Description We invite you to take a few minutes this summer to explore the benefits of developing or expanding a personal mindfulness practice, by joining us for our bi-weekly experiential mindfulness training. This is a great opportunity to try different activities and practices, and to acquire mindful tools and skills to apply in your everyday life either personally or professionally!    Studies show the practice of mindfulness can reduce stress levels, help us manage our emotions and reactions, tune in better to how we and others are feeling, and cultivate compassion for ourselves and others. This helps us make wiser choices, can boost our relationships, and mean we feel happier and calmer.    According to the American Psychological Association (APA) a mindfulness practice can help with the ability to relate to others and oneself with kindness, acceptance, and compassion.  By connecting to themselves, individuals have reported having stronger social connections and reduced feelings of loneliness and isolation.    This series of Mindful Monday sessions will feature a wide range of evidence-based practices from different disciplines, related to Self-Compassion, Intentional Visualization, and Creativity.     This is a 30-minute interactive training that begins on June 26th and will run every other week through September 25th, 2023,     Each month will have a specific theme/focus with exercises from that discipline.
