Before Stage 4: Changing the way we think about mental health

When we think about cancer, heart disease, or diabetes, we don’t wait years to treat them. We start before Stage 4—we begin with prevention. So why don’t we do the same for individuals who are dealing with potentially serious mental illness? In this presentation, we will talk about our #B4Stage4 approach to mental health care, as well as the importance of prevention, screening, early treatment and support.

understanding and building resilience

Psychological resilience reflects the ability of an individual to successfully adapt to difficult or challenging life experiences. Building resilience is important for all of us as we encounter life situations that significantly impact our mental, emotional and physical well-being. This presentation will provide information about resilience, why it’s important, and provide tools and resources to help people build skills for resilience.

The real picture: Minnesotans' stories of mental health recovery and hope

The best way to understand mental health recovery is to hear about it from people who have struggled with mental illness, are working on their recovery and are willing to share their stories to inspire hope and understanding. This presentation showcases the unique stories of Minnesotans who live with mental illness.

mental health and youth/young adults

While many of us struggle at times with our mental health, the pandemic has created significant additional stress, anxiety and depression. This is especially the case for youth and young adults as they have worked to navigate school, relationships and more during this time. This presentation provides information about common mental health concerns for youth and young adults, the increased demand for services and support, and resources available.

mental health prevention 101

Mental health prevention work is incredibly important in helping people take care of their mental health in a proactive way, but it is not well understood. In this presentation, we will talk about primary, secondary and tertiary prevention, and what you can do to take care of your mental health (and help others) in a way that supports well-being and helps prevent crisis.

suicide prevention: understanding the signs and learning how to help

This presentation talks about suicide, but even more importantly, about suicide prevention and how to help someone struggling with their mental health or experiencing a crisis. We will walk through warning signs that might indicate someone is thinking about suicide, what you can do if you are concerned about someone (such as how to start an open and direct conversation with them), and information and resources that are available if you are concerned about someone.

mental health crisis and safety planning

If you or someone you care about experienced a mental health crisis, would you know what to do? This presentation provides information about how to provide support to a person experiencing a mental health crisis, provides information about mental health crisis and suicide prevention services that may be able to help, and discusses the importance of crisis planning (and provides tools to help).

taking care of others, taking care of ourselves: mental health resources for healthcare providers

This presentation provides an overview of common mental health conditions, the importance of addressing mental health needs alongside physical health concerns, how treatment and services are commonly accessed, resources and information to provide to clients and patients, and tips and tools for healthcare providers to take care of their own mental health.
