Mental illnesses are disorders that affect a person’s thinking, mood, and/or behavior —and they can range from mild to severe.
According to the National Institute on Mental Health, nearly one-in-five adults live with a mental illness.
With early and consistent treatment, people with serious mental illnesses can manage their conditions, overcome challenges, and lead meaningful, productive lives.
Mental Health illness is on the rise in every age group and every community. The Marion and Aaron Gural JCC is the proud recipient of a Mental Health Awareness Training grant and it is our mission to get the word out about mental health illness and suicide prevention and to train as many lay and professional people as possible, in small groups, to teach attendees how to recognize signs of mental health illness and distress, to understand the steps that need to be taken to address these warning signs, to offer support and to be the link to getting them help. The training is only about an hour and is impactful and effective. There is no fee but registration is required.
Two separate sessions to choose from:
March 26th 7:00-8:30 pm
March 27th 1:30-3:00 pm
at the Gural JCC (207 Grove Ave, Cedarhurst)
