Mental Health, Cultural Resiliency, Social Justice
Our training team is made up of culturally diverse mental health experts, social workers, faith-based leaders, community advocates and volunteers from multiple healing disciplines. We are passionate about empowering and educating mental health professionals, peer counselors, social service agencies and vulnerable families– black and brown men, women, and children of color, who struggle with the stigma, shame and negative emotional, and physical effects of poverty, mental illness, inequality, injustice, racism, trauma, discrimination. and marginalization.
OUR MISSION AND COMMITMENT
COLLABORATION & COMMUNITY • ELIMINATING BARRIERS
By collaborating with our community partners, social service agencies, educators and those committed to social and healing justice, the Center is able to educate and train organizations, healthcare providers, first-responders, and vulnerable families how to become more mentally resilient and adept at supporting those they serve through awareness, education, and training.
Full Circle is dedicated to increasing access to quality mental health care and services, through culturally competent, spiritually sensitive training programs, courses, and resources for agencies and organizations supporting children, individuals, and families living with mental illness issues, in the urban context. A major focus is education programs on overall mental wellness, eliminating suicide and stamping out the stigma and shame associated with addressing mental health and emotional trauma in underserved children and low -income families.
The center also encourages the use of the outdoors, and creating and taking advantage of healthy, therapeutic, naturic environments, as a way to obtain and maintain mental wellness through outdoor spaces. Through a daily practice of active outdoor activities, we are a commitment to mindset shifting by empowering and building stronger communities to “ stamp out stigma“ through walking off the shame associated with mental health.
Our training programs are evidenced based, state of the art courses, webinars, and workshops, designed by licensed mental health professionals at the top of their field. The Center aims to help further the training of social workers, lay counselors and mental health counseling professionals, who work clinically and administratively to help make a difference in the lives of those they serve and support.
With more concerns about mental health during “pandemic and traumatic times”, mental health awareness education and training has become even more important. Our programs encourage trainees from the mental health field and families dealing with mental illness– to educate themselves from ” fear to faith” as they embrace new knowledge that can help them pass on “hope” and a mindset for “social and healing justice”. Mental wellness is foundational to all wellness and the stigma and shame must not stop access to quality care and psycho-education.
