Free Mental Health First Aid Training Class in October

Free Mental Health First Aid Training Class in Octoberessential

(press release, Sept. 21, 2014)

More often the type of first aid youth need is not a bandage, CPR, or the Heimlich Maneuver. Often the first aid they need is YOU. A young person you know could be experiencing a mental health challenge or crisis, and you can be in a position to help.

Youth Mental Health First AID teaches a five-step plan to offer initial help to young people showing signs of a seed017_darlene_bignottimental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social or self-help care.

County Commissioners Janet Jackson, Nancy L. Quarles, Helaine Zack, Gary R. McGillivray and Dave Woodward have teamed up with Southeast Oakland Coalition, Oakland County Youth Assistance and Tri-Community Coalition to present an 8 hour training program from USA Mental Health.

The free training is divided up into three sessions: October 2, 9 and 16th from 6pm-9pm at the Pleasant Ridge Community Center, 4 Ridge Road, Pleasant Ridge, MI. Seating is limited, so reserve spots quickly by calling 248-858-0051.

Light dinner will be provided.
