Community Education - Mental Health Training from Sheppard Pratt
Teaching community members how to safely intervene during a mental health crisis.
We don't just offer training and education opportunities for professionals - we maintain a strong focus on equipping community members with life-saving skills. Mental health conditions come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and community mental health education programs can help provide support to those that live with a chronic mental illness or are on the road to recovery.
That's why we regularly offer Mental Health First Aid Training in addition to a variety of mental health education programs for the community throughout the year.
