2019 Critical Conversations:  Mental Health Awareness: Libraries Create Safe Zones for Customers and Staff


[Supervisor's Toolkit] "The interaction between different libraries was very helpful.  Role playing allowed me to see how another manager would address a situation and also was reaffirmation that what I had already done was appropriate.  I was overall encouraged at the end of the day, knowing that others face the same challenges and I seem to be on track to becoming a better manager.  I really enjoyed the day!"

"The presenter did an excellent job of explaining w/out using technie jargon or talking over our heads.  She also provided great resources for us to refer to and answered all questions clearly and completely.  I also loved that she stopped and made sure she'd answered our questions to satisfaction."
