In observance of May as Mental Health Month, Wyandot Center and PACES are waiving the $40 registration fee for the May 8 and 9 Mental Health First Aid training.
This program is designed to help participants 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 you encounter.
Wyandot Center and PACES will offer the free training from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, May 8 and 9, each day with time for breaks and lunch. The 12-hour program will be held at Wyandot Center’s 1301 N. 47th St. facility, Kansas City, Kan., and is open to the community. Register by emailing Beth Yoder Stein at firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact her for more information at 913-328-4633.
