suicide prevention classes
Most training classes are free of charge and cover topics such as stigma around suicide, risk factors for youth, LGBTQ+ and Latino/Hispanic communities, and are especially helpful for those that provide services to those communities.
Mental health first aid
Mental Health First Aid is more important now than ever before. In the past, it was believed that 1 in 5 Americans would experience a mental illness in any given year. However, with the events of 2020 and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we now know that almost everyone has faced a mental health challenge this year.
When you attend Mental Health First Aid, you’ll learn how to identify the signs and symptoms of a range of mental health and substance use disorders, and will build the skills and confidence to help someone in crisis.
