NAMI Chaffee County CO, will offer a free, 2-hour virtual mental health crisis planning workshop from 6-8 p.m., Tuesday, May 18. 

Pre-registration is required. 

No one wants to worry about the possibility of a crisis, but they do happen. That doesn’t mean you have to feel powerless.

Participants in this workshop will learn about causes of a mental health crisis, how to recognize signs of a crisis, and steps to take.

Participants will come away with a better understanding of de-escalation techniques, communication and advocacy skills, community resources, problem solving and crisis prevention, as well as how to create a crisis plan. 

To register online for this event or if you would like information about other NAMI programs and support groups, please visit their website at, email, call 970-823-4751 or visit the NAMI Chaffee County Facebook page.
