In recognition of May as Mental Health Awareness Month, WellStone Behavioral Health is offering two highly respected courses that will be open to the public:
- Adult Mental Health First Aid: Friday / May 5, 2017 / 8 am – 5 pm / WellStone Community Room / $25 per participant / Class size limited to 21.
- Youth Mental Health First Aid: Friday / May 12, 2017 / 8 am – 5 pm / WellStone Community Room / $25 per participant / Class size limited to 21.
WellStone Behavioral Health Community Room is Suite E @ 4040 South Memorial Parkway, Huntsville, Alabama, 35802.
Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis. 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. Mental Health First Aid teaches about recovery and resiliency – the belief that individuals experiencing these challenges can and do get better, and use their strengths to stay well.
- Depression and mood disorders
- Anxiety disorders
- Substance Use disorders
To register for one or both of these courses at WellStone please contact Rita Limbaugh at (256) 750-6379 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
