WHEN: Thursday, December 7, 9am to 5pm
WHERE: Civic Hall, 118 W 22nd St., 12th Floor
BACKGROUND: The NYC Veterans Alliance is proud to host this free training provided by the NYC Department of Health and NYC Department of Veterans' Services as part of the City's Thrive NYC initiative. This 8-hour class was created to train agencies/organizations and their employees in the skills needed to identify, understand and respond to mental health and substance abuse challenges and crises.
Access to mental health and suicide prevention resources is a key priority of our members, and we believe that this training can better prepare our leaders and community to recognize, respond, and recommend resources that can improve and even save lives. Family members and personnel working with military and families are often not aware of how to engage veterans with mental illnesses and addictions. This training can help break down the stigma associated with mental illness like anxiety, depression and PTSD, help participants learn how to let veterans know that support is available, and how to reach out to those who suffer in silence and are reluctant to seek help. This training discusses military culture and its relevance to the topic of mental health and trains participants on the specific risk factors facing many service members such as mental and physical trauma, stress and separation. This course is specifically designed for veterans, family members of veterans, personnel working with the military/veterans or families of service members/veterans.
REGISTRATION REQUIRED! Seats are limited, and we need some information from you to share with the NYC Department of Health (who is providing the training). Please fill out the form below and an Alliance staff member will be in touch with you!
