Please join us for a free Youth Mental Health First Aid training on Friday, August 25, 2017 at the Gullotta Library at 254 Hempstead Street, New London. Participants will go through an 8-hour training program that teaches them a five-step action plan to (1) assess a situation, (2) select and implement appropriate interventions, and (3) secure appropriate care for an individual experiencing a mental health problem. Participants also learn risk factors and warning signs of mental illness and about available mental health treatments. Upon completion, participants will have a better understanding of the impact mental illnesses have on a person, their family and communities.
