Capital Region Project AWARE. This project provides FREE training to individuals who work with or support Veterans, Older Adults, and the General Public.

 Participants will improve their mental health literacy by increasing awareness, care, and support that the General Public receives for behavioral health challenges.

 Mental Health & Wellness 101 (MHW101) is a 1-hour training which reframes the conversation about mental health – teaching that we ALL have mental health; it’snot just about the presence or absence of an illness. The training will help participants understand mental health as an integral part of overall health, prevalence of mental illness, and risk & protective factors; and promote help-seeking behavior, recovery, and self-care.
