KMHS offers mental health first aid training
BREMERTON — Mental Health First Aid is a nationally acclaimed training course recognized for its effectiveness in educating adults about how to respond to mental health problems and for reducing the stigma that often prevents people from seeking help.
Certified instructors from Kitsap Mental Health Services will offer the eight-hour course to the Kitsap community Tuesday, Sept. 24.
Participants learn to assess a situation and respond to signs of mental health concerns, such as helping a person through a panic attack, or talking with someone who is anxious or depressed. The course is useful for everyday events, and especially helpful to people working with the public.
Cost for the training is $30; with registration required no later than Sept.17, 2013. For more information, or to register on-line for Mental Health First Aid, visit www.kitsapmentalhealth.org.
