Take part in the Mental Health Association in New York State Inc. (MHANYS) Capital Region Project AWARE. This project provides free training to individuals who work with or support community members in Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga, or Schenectady County. Over the next three years, MHANYS will train individuals across Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga, and Schenectady Counties. Participants will improve their mental health literacy by increasing awareness, care, and support that the General Public receives for behavioral health challenges.
Mental Health & Wellness 101 (MHW101) is a 1-hour training that reframes the conversation about mental health – teaching that we ALL have mental health; it’s not just about the presence or absence of an illness. The training will help participants understand mental health as an integral part of overall health, prevalence of mental illness, and risk & protective factors; and promote help-seeking behavior, recovery, and self-care.
