The Veterans Mental Health Coalition of NYC presents Mastering Tough Conversations: Mental Health & Substance Use Referrals, a virtual workshop on Wednesday, May 26, 9:30-11:00am (Eastern Time).
When your gut tells you there might be something else going on that is inhibiting your Veteran's success and there may be a need for mental health or substance use support, it takes courage to ask about what's going on.
How do you deal with your own emotions?
How do you engage in the conversation and assess the need?
What's the best way to make that referral when needed?
This workshop will provide you with the tools to respond when the situation arises. You will learn how to:
Assess whether a need exists
Engage in a collaborative, goal-oriented style of communication
Utilize simple screening tools
Access behavioral health resources
