Mental Illness affects millions of Americans and those who love them every year. On October 10th, Colibri is recognizing World Mental Health Day by supporting the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) on their goals of getting help early and providing the best care possible for those impacted by mental illness. Specifically, Colibri is donating $15,000 to NAMI and providing free continuing education resources to healthcare providers.
Colibri’s leading values are love, joy, boldness, teamwork, and curiosity. Will you join us as we boldly call out and work together to combat mental illness affecting those we love — so that they might know they are not alone?
Education is at the heart of Colibri’s work supporting healthcare professionals to always be learning. We’re providing free resources about important mental health topics. These tools offer insight on how we can be more understanding and compassionate to those with mental illness.
NAMI offers excellent resources for nearly anyone affected by mental illness, as well as those who love and care for them. This includes a host of mental health education, local and virtual support groups, a NAMI HelpLine, and extensive publications and reports.
For nursing professionals, Colibri is offering free contact hours for the below CE podcasts through October 31st, 2022. Click the Redeem My Contact Hour button below each podcast to complete.
