NAMI is offering Mental Health First Aid and Youth Mental Health First Aid classes every week at our office beginning in July and continuing through August. These trainings are entirely free to the public, but seating will be limited, so be sure to register!
We are following all guidelines given for social distancing to ensure safety of participants and instructors. Because of this, class sizes will be limited to eight participants per class.
Mental Health First Aid teaches participants how to identify, understand, and respond to the signs of mental illness. This course gives an overview of mental health challenges people may be facing, and teaches an action plan for how you can help in some experiencing a mental health episode.
Youth Mental Health First Aid directly addreses understanding mental illness in young people. This course is suitable for parents, teachers, caregivers, and anyone else that would like to help young people experiencing mental health concerns.
