Mental health crises can feel overwhelming. Like any other health emergency, it is important to address a crisis quickly and effectively. People living with a mental health condition—and the people who care for them – need information and resources. Join NAMI Metropolitan Baltimore for a free Mental Health Forum to learn more about preventing suicide. This presentation will focus on recognizing warning signs and symptoms of a crisis, the best ways to intervene, and how to get connected to local resources.
