Mental Health Services Awareness Night

Thursday 12 October 2017

People around you are struggling. Learn how you can help.
You interact with people on a daily basis through your work, church or community responsibilities. However, it may surprise you to learn that ¼ of these people are struggling with a mental or emotional challenge. Many of them go without help because they don’t know where to go for services. You can help with this.

Join hundreds of other community leaders on October 12 for Mental Health Services Awareness Night – a free workshop where you will learn how you can be the link between struggling community members and the services they need. Stay tuned for more details about location, keynote speaker and guest agencies. We hope to see you in October.

Client Art Show

Dates: To Be Announced (Winter 2017)

Help us celebrate the Grand Opening of our Payson Family Clinic and our 50th Anniversary with a Client Art Show. Details are still a little sparse but we will add them as we get them. Once we have a completion date for the building, all the plans will get more specific. In the meantime, create or choose one of your art pieces that could be entered into our show.

Crisis Intervention Training

Crisis Intervention Training (CIT) trains officers to effectively assist individuals in their communities who are in crisis due to behavioral health or developmental disorders. CIT relies on a strong community partnership and a vibrant crisis system to appropriately redirect individuals in crisis away from the criminal justice system and into the behavioral health system. The goals of the program are to reduce stigma, increase both officer and consumer safety, and access supports and services to decrease continuing involvement with the criminal justice system. Click here for more information about the CIT Program.
