Mental Health First Aid Training
This FREE training will be held on two consecutive Saturdays:
Day 1 August 9, 2014

12:00pm – 4:00pm
At The Kingsley Center
Community members must fully commit to the two days for the entire training time.
Mental Health First Aid teaches community members a five-step action plan, ALGEE, to support someone developing signs and symptoms of a mental illness or in an emotional crisis:
Assess for risk of suicide or harm, Listen non-judgmentally, Give reassurance and information, Encourage appropriate professional help, Encourage self-help and other support strategies.
Like CPR, Mental Health First Aid prepares community members to interact with a person in crisis and connect the person with help.
