Healing City Baltimore, in partnership with Baltimore Connect, has begun mapping mental health trainings by compiling a list of workshops covering a diverse range of mental health and wellness topics. These workshops are led by organizations either within Baltimore City or organizations serving Baltimore City residents. We recognize that fellow community members have experienced trauma on structural and systemic fronts. Trauma-Informed Care, mental health first aid, psychological first aid, etc. are resources that can provide service providers and residents the skills needed to respond to such trauma to engage in the healing process.
Our goal is to map all of the great work being done to address mental health and healing and use this information to bring awareness and accessibility to these workshops. This mapping exercise will also help us determine geographical areas with increased support and resources and geographical areas needing additional support. Finally, our goal is to also share this data with policymakers to direct investment in our neighborhoods where resources are needed most!
