Mental Health First Aid training is designed to help persons recognize signs and symptoms of a mental illness, and know what to do in a mental health crisis to help a family member, friend or person.
Wyandot Center and PACES will offer the next Mental Health First Aid training from 8 a.m. to noon Tuesdays, Sept. 3 and 10, with time for breaks and lunch. The curriculum has been reformatted to eight hours (from the original 12-hour session).
The training will be held at Wyandot Center’s 1301 N. 47th St. facility, Kansas City, Kan., and is open to the community. There is a $40 fee per each participant. Register by emailing Beth Yoder Stein at email@example.com, 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.
