Join us in January for an Amigos Library Services class, A Librarian's Guide to Providing Library Services to Patrons with Mental Disorders and Improving Self-Care.

It's estimated by the National Alliance on Mental Health that 1 in 5 people in the United States, from adolescents to elderly adults suffer from a mental disorder - leaving librarians in all settings and institutions likely to encounter patrons with mental health needs.

As a second career librarian with 20+ years of experience as a clinical psychologist, the course instructor, Dawn Behrend, is uniquely positioned to assist librarians in better understanding their role in supporting and servicing patrons with mental health disorders as well as developing techniques for engaging in self-care to prevent burn out and improve well-being.

This course consists of four
one-hour sessions:

*             Wednesday, January 8 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CST
*             Wednesday, January 15 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CST
*             Wednesday, January 22 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CST
*             Wednesday, January 29 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CST

Early bird savings end December 18th!
