Supportive Crisis Response

Crisis happens. When something triggers a reaction that’s linked to past trauma, people can act in ways that may be frustrating, or even frightening, to those around them. Supportive Crisis Response teaches effective ways to address these crises. Participants will learn compassionate methods of responding to the distress or crisis of people who may or may not have mental health challenges, as well as how to address anger, fear, and grief--without needing to involve law enforcement.

Great for:  General Audiences, providers, service professionals, peer professionals, family members

Clearing Clutter, Changing Lives

We all have a relationship with stuff, and for some of us, too much stuff can negatively affect our quality of life. If you work in case management, supportive housing, or another role supporting someone who struggles with acquiring and discarding, Clearing Clutter, Changing Lives can help you see clutter in a new light. Participants will gain useful knowledge about Hoarding Disorder and learn supportive, compassionate, and most of all effective strategies for responding to overwhelming clutter.

Great for:  Providers, service professionals, peer professionals, family members

Language Matters

Language is one of the most important tools we have for understanding the world we live in. By changing the words we use to talk about something, we can change the way we think about it. This is especially true of the language we use to discuss mental health challenges. By giving us the tools we need to make positive changes in the language we use, Language Matters can help each of us create an environment that promotes recovery and wellness.

Great for:  General audiences, providers, service professionals, peer professionals, family members
