Free Interactive Mental Health Training

NYC Health & Mental Hygiene

The BCC ARC staff, in collaboration with the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, will host a three-hour interactive training addressing mental health, equity, and resilience.

While our city strives to restore a sense of normalcy and prevent the spread of the Coronavirus, there are a wide range of concerns that need to be addressed such as mental health challenges brought on by COVID-19 and structural racism.  Part of the three-hour training will include topics touched upon in a 60-minute COVID-19 Community Conversations Presentation.

Participants will gain insight on the following topics:

  • The impact COVID-19 has had on mental health
  • Depression, anxiety and coping with grief
  • Addressing trauma and managing stress
  • Health disparities in communities of color
  • Strategies for self-care and community care
  • Mental health resources available in NYC

What is needed to participate in the training? 

In order to attend the virtual training sessions, participants will need computers with internet access and webcams. American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters can be provided upon request. Please let us know at least two weeks in advance if you would like this service.

We will use the WEBEX platform.  The log-in information will be sent to all registered participants 24 hours before the date of the presentation and a reminder 30 minutes before the presentation begins.  ​
