America is experiencing a mental health crisis due to COVID-19, healthcare issues, financial burdens, inflation, racial tensions, climate change, the attack on the Capitol, gun violence, political conflicts, increased suicide rates, immigration challenges, sexual harassment, the opioid and heroin epidemic, genocide in Ukraine, the attack on Israel, the upcoming presidential election, and the list goes on.
In addition, we live in a zeitgeist where technology is advancing faster than people can adapt. We are experiencing information overload—being saturated with “streaming adversity.” Digital messaging, email, mobile apps, and online platforms are replacing interpersonal face-to-face communication. This has had a profound impact on individuals and organizations and has led to a dramatic increase in mental health disorders.
While artificial intelligence can improve our emotional well-being, we must be cautious. AI offers valuable information and support but can't replace genuine human connection, which is crucial for emotional wellness.
The World Health Organization called for new measures to tackle mental health issues at work. Today, there are actions that organizations can take to promote mental health, keep people functioning during challenging times, and improve productivity.
The National Center's Emotional Wellness presentations are live, engaging, interactive programs with Dr. Mark Lerner, a clinical and forensic psychologist, author, international consultant, and Chairman of the National Center. The Center is adding additional presenters covering a wide range of topics. Participants learn evidence-based strategies and acquire tools to foster their emotional wellness and the emotional well-being of others.
To be prepared for an organizational or workplace crisis, attendees can learn to implement Acute Traumatic Stress Management™ (Lerner & Shelton, 2005), a response protocol that aims to reach people early, during times of crisis, to ease emotional pain, keep people functioning, mitigate ongoing suffering, and restore human stability.
The National Center's presentations are tailored to meet the unique needs of individuals, organizations, corporations, schools, universities, and healthcare providers in our era of technological advancement and AI integration.
Acute Traumatic Stress Management™ (ATSM) was created by Dr. Mark Lerner, who was called upon by the United Nations Department of Safety & Security to train United Nations mental health providers worldwide in New York and Paris, France. Dr. Lerner additionally presented the ATSM model for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Georgia and was additionally called upon to implement ATSM with the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the wake of September 11th. Dr. Lerner spearheaded an Emotional Wellness initiative for Walgreens Corporate and has since presented the ATSM protocol in hospitals, for the pharmacy and pharmaceutical industries, for law enforcement and emergency response agencies, as well as for airlines, corporations, organizations, schools, and universities worldwide.
