A diverse range of mental health challenges may present while working with clients in the community. You’ll learn what to do when a mental health concern presents with a client who is not connected with mental health supports, strategies to approach various types of mental health concerns with clients and how to assist clients to access available resources. Information on available resources and accessing channels will be presented, including mental health programs/supports available through both Island Health and community agencies. This session is designed for health and helping professionals who do not have specific mental health training.
