Every one in four people in the U.S. has a diagnosable mental illness. You will be surprised to know that every family you know may have a member who might be considered "different," "special" or is being treated for a mental condition. What if you are called upon to mitigate a crisis situation involving a personal with a mental condition in the workplace? If you don't handle the situation with proper knowledge and skills, it can not only cost physical injuries but thousands of dollars to your organization or community for perceived negligence.
If you don't know how to read and react to a mental illness crisis situation, you may be setting yourself up for harm or litigation. People that are delusional or have PTSD can respond in a very aggressive manner when confronted with situations that ignite their anxieties. This webinar will assist you in not being the match that starts an emotional fire.
This presentation by expert speaker Jim Zalud will provide you with the knowledge, awareness and ability to deal effectively and productively with a mental illness crisis situation inside or outside the workplace. You will also learn the dos and don'ts in handling such a situation. At the end of this program, you will have a basic strategy of how to deal with a mental illness crisis situation, and the resources available to further your depth of understanding, to help you reduce danger or incurring litigation.
The more you know, the better your chances are of having a more positive outcome in a given mental illness crisis situation.
