Online Access Open Now!
Have you ever asked someone how to support them and they say, "I don't know?"
Then you feel powerless?
Have you ever felt depressed, anxious, or suicidal and completely alone in your own experience?
Does someone ever confide in you and you aren't sure how to respond?
Do you freeze when you realize someone you love is in crisis?
This is for you.
Compassionate Communities is a training to give you the practical skills you need to support yourself or someone else confidently.
"I think it really matters how the people in our lives see us. I generally believe our mental health system is very good at keeping people sick.
What is different about what you are teaching is seeing people where they are and using their potential for being whole and healthy in the way that's best for them.
You teach skills to not get lost in pain, but not ignore it. You teach skills to love yourself and others in it and through it."
