This class explains mental health challenges as adaptations to stress. These responses often appear as a kind of disconnection from objective reality and often show up as anxiety or depression. Sometimes we see more severe signs like dissociation, panic, and psychosis. Through the lens of stress management, this training explains best practices for interacting with people who may be upset or struggling with symptoms.
