      Mental Health First Aid Training

      To support and promote a culturally sensitive community and workforce across our PPS, Care Compass Network is proud to offer a FREE Mental Health First Aid Training on Tuesday, March 3rd, from 8:30 AM to 5:00 pm at Care Compass Network, The Compass Room, 33 Lewis Road, Binghamton NY 13905. Lunch will be provided. This training is open only to Care Compass Network Partner Organizations and registration is required.  Deadline to register is February 21st. Who Should Attend? The Adult Mental Health First Aid course is appropriate for anyone 18 years and older who wants to learn how to help a person who may be experiencing a mental health related crisis or problem, and can include employers, police officers, hospital staff, first responders, faith leaders, community members and/or any caring individual. Participants will receive certification valid for 3 years.  Why Mental Health First Aid? Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness and substance use disorders.  This 8-hour training gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem and help connect them to the appropriate care. Mental Health First Aid USA was introduced in the United States in 2008 and continues to grow in relevance and popularity. The intent of Mental Health First Aid USA is to provide the public with skills to help individuals who are developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. Participants of MHFA-USA will learn how to assess harm to self and others resulting from mental illness, listen while refraining from judgment, manage an acute mental health crisis, discuss local mental health resources and recommend evidence-based self-help strategies for people living with mental illness.
