For Our Community
Each year, Jefferson Center for Mental Health makes a difference in the lives of thousands of community members struggling with mental health disorders. Here are some of the ways we are supporting our community each day!
Mental Health First Aid teaches the public identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. Jefferson Center for Mental Health is proud to offer these interactive 8-hour course free of charge to our community members. Health First Aid does not teach people to be therapists, rather it teaches a 5-step action plan encompassing the skills, resources and knowledge to help an individual in crisis connect with appropriate professional, peer, social and self-help care. Class Schedule
