NAMI, North Iowa Hosting “Mental Health First Aid” Training
September 13, 2017 - 8:30 am until 5:00 pm
National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), North Iowa will host Adult Mental Health First Aid on Wednesday, September 13th from 8:30 am – 5:00 pm at NIACC, Mason City in Activity Center AC150.
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 Cerro Gordo County Social Services 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.
