On Saturday, June 1, the Coronado Public Library will host a Mental Health Resource Day beginning at 10 a.m. There will be a variety of staffed tables with resources on topics like problem gambling, mood screening, and parenting. Educational presentations will begin at 10 a.m. and drop-ins are welcome.

The event will begin with stress-reducing art followed by a talk on healing after witnessing a suicide. There will be a presentation on responding to dementia-related behavior and a class on parenting strategies during separation or divorce. Lastly, there will be a workshop to teach exercises to release stress. Finally, we will host a free screening of Generation Zapped, a documentary showing the physical and mental effects of living in a wireless age.

Also offered are two structured classes requiring advance registration. The first is Mental Health First Aid, an eight-hour certified program to educate participants on warning signs of mental crisis, and action plans to support someone in a crisis. This class runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The other is a suicide prevention class teaching three steps to help save a life, and it taught from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. To sign up, call the library at 619-522-7390.
