Mental Health First Aid Training Part 1
This event is in the past.
Mental Health First Aid is a course that teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. The training gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial help and support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem or experiencing a crisis. Co-Trainers Stef Kastely, Ph.D., L.P.C. (University Counselor II, WSU CAPS) and Dr. Shantalea Johns (Assistant Professor Clinical, Director of Continuing Education, Social Work) will be conducting this certification for faculty and staff in cooperation with the Office for Teaching and Learning.
This session is part two of a two-session workshop. The first session will be held on Friday, February 3, 9:00 am - 11:30 am. Participants who attend both training sessions and complete the pre- and post-workshop assessments (administered during the sessions), are certified for 3 years in mental health first aid and will receive a digital copy of the mental health first aid manual for additional reference. Participants will be invited to complete questionnaires after completion of training.
