The Help Group’s Mental Health Matters Breakfast: Pathways to Resilience

May 9 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm


The Help Group will be hosting its first annual Mental Health Matters Breakfast honoring LACDMH’s Director, Lisa Wong, PsyD, with the Spirit of Hope Award in observance of National Mental Health Awareness Month. With a longstanding track record of disseminating evidence-based best practices to clinicians, The Help Group’s breakfast is designed to increase awareness and communal collaboration to address some of the key issues impacting mental health in our schools and communities.

Join us for a morning of insightful presentations led by mental health experts as we delve into strategies to foster resilience in trauma-informed care; identify, assess, and respond to early warning signs of suicide risk in adolescence; and support clinicians and educators who are impacted by trauma with strategies for self-care in order to develop psychological resilience.
