PHSA, in partnership with Community Services Group (CSG), will be offering five sessions of Adult Mental Health First Aid. 

Like CPR training helps a non-medical professional assist an individual following a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid helps an individual who doesn’t have clinical training assist someone experiencing a mental health crisis. In both situations, the goal is to help support an individual until appropriate professional help arrives. Community Services Group (CSG) staff are among the first in the nation to become certified trainers for this important program. 

When: April 28, May 6, May 28, and June 4 2021
Where: Zoom! This training will be held virtually.
Time: 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Participants: Space limited to 25 per session
Cost: $100 per participant
