Mental Health First Aid Class In Clifton Forge

Alleghany Highlands Community Service will be hosting a Mental Health First Aid class on 10/21 from 8:30 AM – 5PM at the Lifeskills Building, 550 Pine St. Clifton Forge, VA. You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, coworker, neighbor, or member of the community — in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to people
with the signs and symptoms of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self-help care. Anyone can take the 8-hour Mental Health First Aid course — first responders, students, teachers, leaders of faith communities, human resources professionals, and
caring citizens.
