A Librarian's Guide to Providing Library Services to Patrons with Mental Disorders and Improving Self-Care
It is 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, which - for many - causes a barrier to learning. This course is built to help you better and more confidently address the needs of your public who may have noticeable mental health issues.
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.
