  1. Safety Summit
    An event to promote safety awareness for our Home Visiting Program families.

  2. Adult Mental Health First Aid

    Mental Health First Aid for Adults teaches people how to recognize signs of mental health or substance use challenges in adults ages 18 and older, how to offer and provide initial help, and how to guide a person toward appropriate care if necessary. Topics covered include anxiety, depression, psychosis, and addictions.

    Just as CPR training helps a person with no clinical training assist an individual following a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid training helps a person assist someone experiencing a mental health crisis such as contemplating suicide. In both situations, the goal is to help support an individual until appropriate professional help arrives.

     

    Mental Health First Aiders learn a single 5-step action plan known as ALGEE, which includes assessing risk, respectfully listening to and supporting the individual in crisis, and identifying appropriate professional help and other support. Participants are also introduced to risk factors and warning signs for mental health or substance use problems, engage in experiential activities that build understanding of the impact of illness on individuals and families, and learn about evidence-supported treatment and self-help strategies. 


  3. Youth Mental Health First Aid

    Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify,
    understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and
    substance use disorders. This 8-hour training gives adults who
    work with youth the skills they need to reach out and provide initial
    support to adolescents (ages 12-18) who may be developing a mental
    health or substance use problem and help connect them to the
    appropriate care.

    The course will teach you how to apply the ALGEE action plan:
    • Assess for risk of suicide or harm
    • Listen non-judgmentally
    • Give reassurance and information
    • Encourage appropriate professional help
    • Encourage self-help and other
    support strategies
