Community Presentations

Community Presentations

Our Education & Community Training Department is pleased to offer educational Community Presentations to bring hope to families and individuals who live with mental illness and inform community members what they can do to best support and come alongside these individuals and family members. Through education we can reduce stigma, provide resources and inform the public that recovery is possible. Our department offers a variety of different types of trainings that are available to any organization or group requesting a presentation. We aim to tailor our presentations to your group’s needs, to make sure that you are receiving the information and education that will be most helpful to your group.

We offer specialized presentations that cover basic information about mental illness such as signs and symptoms, talk about the prevalence and importance of discussing mental health problems, and also provide practical steps for connecting people with mental illness and their family members to appropriate people and resources. Presenters from our Speaker’s Bureau present their personal recovery stories living with mental illness, or being a friend or family of someone with a mental illness.
