The Inclusive Library - Effectively Responding to a Mental Health Crisis (Part 1)

The Inclusive Library series of five webinars was developed to meet the agency’s goal of ensuring that all Texans receive responsive library services, including Texans from traditionally marginalized populations.

Mental health issues impact 1 in 5 Americans each year which has a higher prevalence rate than cancer, diabetes and asthma. Yet, most people are ill-equipped and unsure about how best to respond when a person is struggling through a mental health crisis. As a community gathering space, libraries may experience a higher number of incidents of people experiencing a crisis. If you're not sure how to respond effectively and would like to develop some tools for addressing and de-escalating crisis situations in a calm, responsible and compassionate way, you'll want to participate in this two-part training provided collaboratively by the Austin Police Department's Crisis Intervention Team and the Austin affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
