The 2019 Keys to Wellness training will feature nationally-renowned speakers from NoStigmas in Wytheville for the Ally Training.

The NoStigmas Ally Training is a two-day, skills building course that helps to cultivate behavioral health support communities through self-care, peer support, and advocacy. The training is for anyone who wants to make a difference for themselves or others living with behavioral health illness. It is designed to increase awareness and skills, bring about a change in our culture, and eradicate the stigmas associated with behavioral health challenges.

Each module provides members with the tools to find support, build alliances, and practice advocacy in their daily life from within their own community. The workshop is designed to provide valuable information and training to help people become informed and equipped to help individuals and families in our communities to overcome behavioral health challenges like addiction, depression, grief, and suicide.
