CE Course Description

This brief continuing education course is designed to give an overview of mental health issues facing communities while identifying ways to break down misperceptions and promote recovery. The information was taken from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services publication, Community Conversations about Mental Health, which describes innovative community-based solutions to mental health needs, with a focus on helping young people. It also describes a variety of ways in which people can facilitate their community conversations and take next steps at the local level to raise awareness about mental health and promote access to mental health services.
