Just as CPR training helps a layperson assist an individual experiencing a cardiac crisis, Mental Health First Aid training helps an individual assist someone experiencing a mental health crisis.
Mental health disorders are more common than heart disease and cancer combined. This interactive 8-hour training is designed to give members of the public important skills to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis.
Individuals who may consider attending may include allied health professionals, foster families, social service coordinators, human resource professionals, nursing home employees and anyone interested in understanding more about mental illnesses.
This Center sponsored training will be Wednesday, April 23 at the Reynolds Cancer Support House on 3324 M Street in Fort Smith from 7:30am-5pm. For more details or to enroll, please contact Joni Padilla at 479-785-9432.
