Mental Health Training

Mental Health First Aid Training, September 17

Are you caring for an aging adult? Statistics tell us that among Americans of all ages, 12.4 per 100,000 take their own lives each year, according to 2010 statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But among those over 65, the official number is 14.9, and suicide may be under-reported. Join us for Mental Health First Aid Training for people caring for and working with aging adults, Saturday, September 17 from 8:30am-4:30pm. This one-day training will help you recognize warning signs and equip you with a 5-step action plan to offer support until appropriate professional help is received.

Cost is $10. RSVP: Rev. Heather Jallad at heatherj@douglasvillefumc.org or 770-942-3146.
