Sponsored by: Discovery Counseling Center
Mental health problems are common. We see signs of them every day in friends, family members, co-workers and in our faith communities. We know that without early intervention individuals can be lost to suicide or addiction, sink into deep depression, experience paralyzing anxiety, or endanger themselves or others. Yet most of us are not confident in our ability to help.
An international public health training course has been developed that will give us the skills and knowledge to help friends, neighbors, family members and members of our faith community who are faced with challenging mental health concerns. Mental Health First Aid training provides clergy and laity with the skills and knowledge necessary to identify and assist individuals with developing mental health care needs, as well as those in crisis, until appropriate professional help is available.
