Caring for the Mind is a Moodle format 3 credit CE class from the NN/LM PNR which runs from February 1-29. Responding to questions involving topics on mental health is challenging even for the most experienced librarian. In Caring for the Mind, participants will learn about resources and how to effectively provide mental health information at their libraries or community organization. The class is self-paced and participants will find it more rewarding by participating in class discussions. Caring for the Mind qualifies towards the Medical Library Association’s Consumer Health Information Specialization (CHIS). Not a medical librarian? Don’t worry, being a medical librarian is not required for this specialization nor to take the class.
