Public Librarians' Chat: Mental Health Initiative
Our guest presenter this month is Jeremy Wilson, Project Coordinator for California State Library's Mental Health Initiative. The goal of California's Mental Health Initiative is to provide every library staff member in the state with the opportunity to learn how to work effectively with patrons affected by mental illness. During the webinar Jeremy will share information on the events or trends in libraries that led the California State Library embark on the Mental Health Initiative. He will also share information about his role in developing a series of 8 videos that address different aspects of mental health illness and demonstrate how library staff can best respond. During the webinar, we will discuss how librarians in Alaska can use the mental health videos with their staff and volunteers and share Alaska specific mental health resources available to librarians and the public.
