“Task-shifting” is a term used to describe when non-mental health professionals are trained to use specific skills when addressing mental health concerns. This strategy is employed when there are not enough mental health professionals available to address the level of mental health needs in a specific community, such as when a natural disaster occurs.

With the expected increase of mental health challenges related to COVID-19, our third webinar installment will highlight faith-based and community groups, which are using online training and resources to develop mental health skills in their leaders.

Join us on Tuesday, May 26 at 11:00 AM Central, to learn more about these innovative efforts and consider how you and your community can participate, too!
