Are you sending out sponsorship packages every week and hearing nothing back? Gold, Silver, Bronze doesn’t work…but what do you use instead? Simply throwing together a bunch of facts about your cause along with a chart with predefined levels is not going to cut it in the highly competitive sponsorship space. Building a sponsorship deck is a process and it requires your organization to ask some tough questions.

Mental health issues impact 1 in 5 Americans each year which has a higher prevalence rate than cancer, diabetes and asthma. Yet, most people are ill-equipped and unsure about how best to respond when a person is struggling through a mental health crisis. As a community gathering space, libraries may experience a higher number of incidents of people experiencing a crisis. If you're not sure how to respond effectively and would like to develop some tools for addressing and de-escalating crisis situations in a calm, responsible and compassionate way, you'll want to participate in this two-part training provided collaboratively by the Austin Police Department's Crisis Intervention Team and the Austin affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
