Serving Patrons with Mental Health Challenges: Strategies, Community Resources, and Self-Care Techniques

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that over half of Americans will be diagnosed with a mental disorder in their lifetime, with one in five adults anticipated to be diagnosed within a year’s time. Libraries play a central role in their communities and librarians must be prepared to encounter patrons who are faced with mental health difficulties. This session will provide an overview of common mental disorders in children, adolescents, and adults and ways of addressing challenging patron behaviors. The session will also include tips for coordinating with community resources to serve patrons with mental health needs, programming for mental health awareness, and self-care strategies to prevent burn out. 

Dawn Behrend is an Instruction and Outreach Librarian at Lenoir-Rhyne University, where she serves as the liaison for psychology, counseling, mathematics, computer science, and business and manages the library’s social media platforms. She holds a B.A. in Psychology, M.A. in Clinical Psychology, Master of Business Administration, and Master of Library Science. Ms. Behrend has worked for 20 years as a clinical psychologist and is a second career librarian. Ms. Behrend continues to work in private practice in addition to her work as an academic librarian.
