Event description

Description

Mental health challenges – such as depression, anxiety, psychosis and substance use – are shockingly common in the United States. In fact, more than one in five American adults will have a mental health problem in any given year. The National Council for Behavioral Health certifies individuals throughout the nation to provide Mental Health First Aid courses to prepare their communities with the knowledge and skills to help individuals who are developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. Identified on SAMHSA’s National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices, the training helps the public better identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses.

Join local, certified trainers Cynthia Perry from Anderson Oconee Pickens Department of Mental Health and Kurt Stutler with South Main Chapel and Mercy Center for a full day of inter-active training. Mental Health First Aiders will learn a 5-step action plan that guides them through the process of reaching out and offering appropriate support.
