Mental Health Support Alliance
We created this training video for nonprofit Depression & Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA), which they use to recruit peer support for people with depression and bipolar disease. The video shows what it’s like living with — and successfully coping with — the illness. We’re proud of having been able to provide to this amazing organization a video training on the effective and compassionate use of de-escalation techniques. De-escalation has replaced the long-used and often abused practice of physical take-downs. De-escalation is not only a more compassionate technique to use with someone experiencing agitation, it is also much more effective.
