March 13, 2014

Mental Health First Aid Training – space limited

Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) March 13, 2014

Mental health challenges – such as depression, anxiety, psychosis and substance use – are shockingly common in the United States. In fact, more than one in five American adults will have a mental health problem in any given year. The National Council for Behavioral Health certifies individuals throughout the nation, including Adult and Child Center, to provide Mental Health First Aid courses to prepare their communities with the knowledge and skills to help individuals who are developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. Identified on SAMHSA’s National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices, the training helps the public better identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses.

Adult and Child Center has partnered with John H Boner Center and The Indianapolis Foundation to offer this remarkable training at no charge to our community. Space is limited!

March 18th and 19th between 8:30a and 12:30p
