RTC Parent Program: Mental Health & Wellness 101

The median time between the onset of mental illness (when symptoms first appear) and when an individual gets appropriate treatment is 10 years. During that time, a person is likely experiencing periods of increased symptomology and periods of wellness. Mental Health and recovery are dependent on an individual's ability to recognize and manage where they are each day on the continuum between wellness and illness, and to take care accordingly. Education and early intervention promotes wellness and leads to better outcomes.
Goals of the Training:

Increase basic knowledge of mental health to help reduce stigma.

Understand Mental Health as a continuum of wellness that defines us every day - it is illness, recovery and all of the space in between.

Promote wellness, treatment seeking behavior, recovery and self-care.
This training is taught by Wendy Blanchard, M.S., CHHC, CPS, Client & Family Advocate and Community Educator. Wendy Blanchard was honored to be a part of creating this training as a resource and support for the newly implemented New York State Mental Health Education Law which began on July 1, 2018. This training is sponsored by Rockland Teachers' Center in conjunction with the Rockland County School Health and Wellness Coalition Registration Required.
