Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour in-person training that helps you recognize and respond to someone with a mental health problem

About this Event

Thanks to a grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Preferred Behavioral Health Group and the Mental Health Association of Monmouth County will be training hundreds of First Responders (Police / Fire / EMS) in Monmouth and Ocean Counties in Mental Health First Aid. Pastor Lyddale Akins of Triumphant Life Church and Pastor Joe Gratzel of First Baptist Church of Manasquan have teamed up to provide this training to clergy as a special outreach during September, which is National Suicide Prevention and National Recovery Month.
