Date: 9/30/2017
Start Time: 9:00 AM
End Time: 5:00 PM
Description:
 Advocate Good Shepherd instructors will hold an 8‐hour Mental Health First Aid training that will discuss depression, anxiety, impulse control and misuse of alcohol and other drugs. More than one in four American adults will have a mental health problem in a year. The National Council on Community Behavioral Healthcare has begun working with communities throughout the nation, including the McHenry County Mental Health Board, to implement Mental
Health First Aid to arm the public with skills to help individuals who are developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis.

The Instructor is a certified trainer through the “National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare.” In the Mental Health First Aid course, attendees will learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non‐crisis situations, and where to turn for help. Mental Health First Aid teaches about recovery and resiliency – the belief that individuals experiencing these challenges can and do get better, and use their strengths to stay well. This training is mainly targeted for individuals who are interested in learning ways to assist individuals experiencing a mental health crisis.
