Long Description:

Mental Health First Aid training is aimed at helping people whose professions frequently bring them into contact with individuals exhibiting problems related to mental illness, substance use, poverty or homelessness. The Library is partnering with the Mahoning County Mental Health and Recovery Board and Alta Care Group, which will provide instructors. Participants in this two-part series will learn risk factors and warning signs, as well as strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help. Each participant will also receive a First Aid book. Space is limited; please call 330-744-8636 ext. 50066 to register for the series. The sessions are available to Library staff, as well as people who have jobs in which they could encounter individuals needing this type of assistance. Program is thanks to a grant from the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and awarded by the State Library of Ohio, under the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA).
