With accounts of signs and symptoms of mental illness aired in the news, have you ever wondered how you would respond to help in a situation like one of these stories -- a pilot with behavioral problems, a person with road rage, a troubled teenager?
Mental Health First Aid training is designed to do just this: help you recognize signs and symptoms and know what to do in a mental health crisis to help a family member, friend or person with whom you come into contact.
Wyandot Center and PACES will offer the next Mental Health First Aid training 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, March 6 and 7, each day with time for breaks and lunch. The 12-hour program will be offered at Wyandot Center's 1301 N. 47th St. Building and is open to the community. There is a $40 fee per each participant. Register by emailing Beth Yoder Stein at email@example.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>, or contact her for more information at 913-328-4633.
Wyandot Center is Wyandotte County's designated community mental health center serving adults; PACES provides services for children and adolescents facing behavioral and emotional challenges, and their families.
