Mental Wellness Workshops

The 2022-2024 Community Health Needs Assessment found mental health to be a top priority in our community, and Lakeland began a journey to focus efforts on mental health resources, system level advocacy, and trauma-informed health care. Part of that journey is offering a range of virtual and in-person mental wellness workshops. We invite you to take a look at what we offer and then take part as we work to make our community a place where optimal health is achievable for everyone. Registration is required for each workshop. 


Mental Health 101:  Wellness, Trauma and Resilience

Created in response to the community’s stated priority health need of mental health, this introductory workshop will introduce three topics: mental wellness, trauma, and resilience. You will learn commonly used terms and be provided interactive opportunities to explore what these concepts mean to you and the community, and their implications for health outcomes. In addition, participants will discover mental wellness strategies and educational resources that are available including Community Resilience Model (CRM) and Mental Health First Aid (Youth and Adult).

Length: 2 hours

Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches adults how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness and substance use disorders in youth.

Community Resiliency Model

The Community Resiliency Model® (CRM) is a biologically-based trauma intervention designed for community members who need information about trauma and coping skills but who have limited access to mental health resources. CRM® teaches skills for self-care to balance the nervous system of those impacted by personal or community-level trauma (such as violence, poverty, racism, and homophobia). Participants will receive tools they can immediately implement as well as learn about future events for gaining deeper understanding of the model.

Length: Introduction - 2 hours; Workshops - 3-5 hours; Full Training - 1-2 Days
