In the spirit of wellness, I am extending an invitation for a Mental Health First Aid Training. We have facilitators from Thrive NYC coming to do a work shop on: Adult Core Mental Health First Aid training.
Below is a little information about the training and the benefits.
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training teaches you how to identify signs of mental health distress, or substance use issues in your community. It will help you understand people's challenges or crises, and show you how to respond effectively.
Research shows that MHFA training has a number of benefits.
Improved ability to recognize behavioral health challenges
Greater confidence in one's ability to help
Decreased negative attitudes toward behavioral health challenge
If you are interested in taking this training, we have 18 slots left. Please register online at the link posted here.
