Faith community leaders are often the first to respond to a mental health crisis:

The confusing, frightening phone call. The disruptive guest. The family devastated by suicide.

Mental Health Association Oklahoma and the Oklahoma Conference of Churches are sponsoring a two-day seminar where you can learn valuable tools and resources.

  • Day One (Tuesday, October 25) includes “Mental Health First Aid” in which you will learn skills to help someone who is developing a mental health issue, or experiencing a mental health crisis. Registration is limited to 30.
  • Day Two (Wednesday, October 26) will provide practical, local information and resources. What is an Emergency Order of Detention? What is the Crisis Intervention Team and how do I contact them? What are the best practices and resources when responding to suicidality? What special resources are available for those returning from military deployment?

You may attend one or both days. Registration is $12 each day, which covers your lunch.

Hear from speakers and collect resources from:

  • Mental Health Association Oklahoma
  • Oklahoma Conference of Churches
  • Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services
  • Oklahoma Department of Veterans Affairs
  • National Alliance for the Mentally Ill
