PEACE OF MIND PROGRAM
at NorCal funded by Sacramento County Behavioral Health Services.
Peace of Mind is focused on promoting Mental Health:
- As a critical part of overall wellness.
- Including prevention services for those who need information and resources.
- Removing the stigma (negative attitudes) often associated with mental illnesses.
- Being okay with receiving services from someone to help you manage your thoughts, emotions, feelings and overall well-being.
Peace of Mind offers the following services:
- Support you on your mental health wellness journey. Including speaking up against any forms of racism to ensure that BIPOC have accessible resources for those needing mental health services.
- Information sharing about mental health with you. This includes helping you find and access mental health information or resources in Sacramento county.
- Referral and linkage to the mental health services you are seeking.
- Education access through social media and other avenues about mental health and share some tips on how to maintain mental wellness.
- Peer Support Groups for Deaf and Hard of Hearing students through local schools in Sacramento.
- Mental Health Awareness by removing the stigma often associated with mental health illnesses or receiving mental health services as there is nothing wrong with asking for help or getting mental health services.
- Deaf Zen community activity to help increase your knowledge of what type of tools you can use for taking care of yourself.
- Trainings and workshops to the community mental health providers, interpreters, advocates and even NorCal staff.
