Please join us on Saturday, March 24, 2018 from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM for an 8-hour Mental Health First Aid training course hosted by St. Luke the Evangelist Episcopal Church in Houston and sponsored by the Episcopal Health Foundation.
Mental Health First Aid Teaches:
* Risk factors and warning signs of mental health concerns
* Information on depression, anxiety, trauma, psychosis, and substance abuse
* A 5-step action plan to help someone developing a mental health concern or in crisis
* Available evidence-based professional, peer, and self-help resources
Who takes the course?: Mental Health First Aid is intended for all people and organizations that make up the fabric of a community. Professionals who regularly interact with a lot of people (such as police officers, human resource directors, and primary care workers), school and college leadership, faith communities, friends and family of individuals with mental illness or addiction, or anyone interested in learning more about mental illness and addiction should get trained. For any clergy who need CEUs, the certificate will be sufficient verification of hours. Participants will earn 8.0 CEUs upon completion of the training.
The training is FREE and lunch will be provided. Registration is required. You may register directly using the link here: https://tinyurl.com/stlukeshouston. Please be sure to RSVP soon as space is limited. With any questions regarding registration, please contact Melodee Toles at (832) 658-2662.
