“Creating a Neighborhood of Support”

A three-part series of trainings on Minnesota adult mental health services

In 2008 and 2009, the Region 4 South Adult Mental Health Consortium developed and presented a series of trainings which are now available in three parts, both online and on DVD. These trainings are designed to help participants better understand the full range of mental health services available to support adults with mental illness at all stages (low to high intensity). The focus of each part is as follows:

Each part in the series may be viewed as a stand-alone training, but the three parts together provide a more rich picture of the adult mental health system. Participants will walk away understanding the breadth of adult mental health services available as a whole in Region 4 South and how they function uniquely in each of the following five Region 4 South counties: Douglas, Grant, Pope, Stevens, and Traverse.
