Mental Health First Aid Training 

At the June 2018 Stakeholder Meeting, we asked attendees what training opportunities would be of interest. Not surprisingly, there was an interest in Mental Health First Aid training. Opportunities for upcoming trainings can be found here - https://www.mentalhealthfirstaid.org/take-a-course/find-a-course/   
One of the next sessions is an all-day training on Monday, July 30 from 8:30am to 5pm at the GLBT Center. The instructor has let us know that she needs just one more registrant to hold the class and there is room for many more. The course is being offered at no charge and participants will walk away with a MHFA Participant manual as well as a verification of attendance.
