FSS focuses its trainings about Mental Illness from a layman’s perspective. It answers two main points: 1. What are the signs of mental illness?  What does it look like on the street? What does a person in recovery look like?  And 2.  How do you deal with it once you’ve recognized it?  Is the person you’re looking at a criminal that needs to be controlled or a person with an illness that needs treatment?  Looking at specific illnesses, the interplay of substance abuse, developmental delays or those on the Autism Spectrum FSS helps you recognize the need, discusses specific helpful behaviors and understand diversion resources in your community.
