Join AHHRA with guest speaker Beth Brady, the Director of Organizational Strategy and Education for Crisis Response Network, as we provide our members with a general understanding of mental health challenges that someone may face in their life and the impact it can have at work. You will learn to identify signs and symptoms of common mental illness, domestic violence and suicide. Learn practical ways to help and how to connect the person in distress to professional help when necessary. Participants will also learn about free local community resources to assist during times of crisis and additional training opportunities.
