How Do Communities Welcome People Managing Mental Illnesses and the Disease of Addiction?

Class Details

Many communities have made concerted efforts to welcome and serve vulnerable people who manage mental illnesses and/or the disease of addiction. Very often, libraries function as the focal point for information about services, diagnoses and treatments, and other community groups turn to them for guidance. This webinar will provide ideas about how community members can learn about behavioral health issues, so they can serve these citizens with respect and dignity.

Participants are eligible for 1 MLA CE.
