NAMI California helps host Solano County’s Mental Health 101 training
Members from our Merced, Solano, and Yolo County affiliates joined together over the weekend for NAMI Solano County’s Mental Health 101 Presenter and Cultural Competency Training. This two day training prepared members to go out into diverse communities equipped to provide education about mental health and stigma reduction (through the power of sharing their stories of lived experience as peers, and supporters of loved ones with mental health experiences). Members were also trained in Cultural & Linguistic Competency, engaging in open discussions to explore ways to effectively and appropriately engage diverse communities of all backgrounds.
Congratulations again to our newly trained Mental Health 101 presenters!
