Mental Health First-Aid Workshop
Cost is $100 for the all-day workshop (8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.). Lunch and snacks are included.
Mental Health First Aid is a skills-based training course that teaches participants about mental health. As identified mental health concerns increase for in-bound and out-bound students within International Education, this program trains participants to understand and respond to people in distress. In the Mental Health First Aid course, you learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help. https://www.mentalhealthfirstaid.org/
The instructor for this course will be Colleen Fitzgibbons from the Center for Public Health Practice at The Ohio State University.
There will be a limit of 30 spaces.
