Sign up now for upcoming Mental Health First Aid courses in Atlanta. This is a great training opportunity for clergy, Christian educators, church staff, and church members to help promote mental and emotional wellbeing in your congregations. Mental Health First Aid is a 12-hour training course designed to give members of the public key skills to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. Just as CPR training helps a layperson without medical training assist an individual following a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid training helps a layperson assist someone experiencing a mental health crisis. The cost of the course is $125 per person ($95 for students). Each participant receives certification in Mental Health First Aid (valid for 3 years), a training manual, and other resources, and a boxed lunch each day. Fall courses will be held on Oct. 11 and 13, and Oct. 27 and 28, and Nov. 8 and 10 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Kirkwood United Church of Christ.
