About us

The Psychiatry and Behavioral Science Department was awarded a five-year grant from SAMHSA to provide Mental Health Awareness Training within our community. Our focus is to better prepare law enforcement, first responders, and other community members to identify mental illness. We encourage trainees to establish referral linkages by connecting individuals with available community resources (i.e psychiatric services, counseling, peer support, self-help groups).

Our Project Coordinator, Kayleigh Faber, provides a Mental Health First Aid Certification course which includes topics on depression and mood disorders; anxiety disorders; trauma; psychosis; and substance use disorders.

We are fortunate the grant also allows for additional mental health awareness training. If you have a topic that you feel would be beneficial for you or your staff, please reach out!
