Community members are invited to attend a free, eight-hour mental health first aid training course on Thursdays, October 5 and 12 from 5:00 pm to 9:30 pm at St. Joseph First United Methodist Church.
Adult Mental Health First Aid is an evidence-based public education and prevention tool which works to improve the public’s knowledge of mental health and substance use problems, help adults take the fear and hesitation out of starting conversations, and connects people with care. Studies show one in five Americans has a mental illness, but many are reluctant to seek help or might not know where to turn for care. When more people are equipped with the tools they need to start a dialogue, more people can get the help they may need.
A training manual and certification is provided upon completion. Preregistration is required; call (269) 556-2808 or (866) 260-7544
