Mental Health 101: Awareness Training

March 24 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Thursday, March 24th, 2022
10:00 am – 12:00PM

Presented by: Jasmine Lucas
Email: jlucas@mhaw.org

Goals of the training:

  • Increase basic knowledge of mental health to help reduce stigma.
  • Understand Mental Health as a continuum of wellness that defines us every day — it is
  • illness, recovery and all of the space in between.
  • Promote wellness, treatment seeking behavior, recovery and self-care.

Why is this important?
Consider this: the median time between the onset of mental illness (when symptoms first appear) and when an individual gets appropriate treatment is 10 years. During that time time, a person is likely experiencing periods of increased symptomology and periods of wellness.
Mental Health and recovery are dependent on an individual’s ability to recognize and manage where he/she is each day on the continuum between wellness and illness and take care accordingly, an important piece to quality of life. Education and early intervention promotes wellness.
