Sometimes First Aid isn’t a bandage, or CPR or calling 911. Sometimes First Aid is you!
Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour training course which teaches participants an action plan to assess a situation, select, and implement interventions and secure appropriate care for an individual. The program introduces participants to risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems, builds understanding of their impact, and overviews common treatments.
United Counseling Service of Bennington County will be holding Mental Health First Aid Training on August 28th and 29th from 12:30 to 4:30pm at 100 Ledge Hill Drive in Bennington. The cost of the course is $40 and seating is limited. To reserve a spot or if you have questions contact Amy Niles at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 802.445.7443.
