We give help for diabetes. Why not depression? You can do something to help. HTS will host this mental health training session which will give you the know-how you need to identify signs of mental illness and respond to someone experiencing a mental health crisis.
The 8-hour general course is designed for people who live, work or engage with other adults. It’s great for:
- Faith communities
- Community organizations
- Social services workers
- General community members
What will you learn?
- A 5-step action plan to identify, understand and respond to adults experiencing mental illness
- How to talk to an adult in crisis
- Info about mental health resources in your community
With Mental Health First Aid, you’ll be prepared when a mental health crisis happens. And you’ll have the chance to be there for someone who needs you.
Registration is limited to 60 participants who are residents of Rowan County, NC. Funded by a grant from the Salisbury Community Foundation. To register, please contact Rev. Dr. Lamont Foster at email@example.com.
