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