East Bay HIV Linkage and Retention Working Group

Mental health: therapeutic alliance, suicide prevention and resources

Thursday, March 30, 2023, 10 am to 12 noon on Zoom

Please register here.

Thanks to everyone who voted on their preference for remote or an in-person meeting – we had 64% vote on the Zoom option for this meeting, so this workshop will be held on Zoom. We will revisit having the next workshop in-person.

Intention and learning objectives: We aim to provide an open, inviting and collaborative space so HIV and mental health service providers, public health and community advocates can:

  1. Discuss at least two skills to build a therapeutic alliance with clients with mental health conditions.
  2. Practice at least two ways to prevent suicide and de-escalate crisis situations.
  3. Review mental health resources in the East Bay.
