MENTAL HEALTH/SUICIDE PREVENTION EXPERT TO TRAIN ON REBOUNDING FROM MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES DUE TO COVID-19
Atlanta, GA…Thursday, November 12, 2020…Venessa Abram, founder/executive director of Self Discovery Pain, Positioning and Purpose, a 501c3 nonprofit, will be leading a series of virtual trainings designed to address the many COVID-19 anxieties experienced by various communities.
Made available as a result of a grant provided by the Community Foundation of Greater Atlanta, the Community Resilience Model (CRM) Training will offer four sessions which are designed to help attendees bounce back mentally from the challenges experienced during this extremely stressful COVID-19 era.
“The purpose of the CRM training is to help community members not only help themselves, but their broader social network,” says Abram, an award-winning author, mental health advocate and trainer, who specializes in advocacy and trainings on mental health and suicide prevention. “The primary focus of this skills-based program is to reset the natural balance of the nervous system by understanding how trauma and chronic stress impacts the nervous system and how resiliency can be restored,” she said.
Among the key components of the training sessions will be mental health, wellness, resiliency education, tools, skills and resources.
The dates and times for the Community Resilience Model Trainings will be Monday, November 16 at 10:00am; Monday, November 23 at 1:00p.m.; Monday, December 14 at 10:00am and Monday, December 28 at 1:00p.m.
“We encourage those that are struggling and their networks to attend these sessions,” shared Abram. “The goal of these trainings is to create trauma-informed and resiliency-focused communities. When we do this, we have the best chance of helping our families and communities rebound successfully from these challenging times in which we’re all living,” she said.
