With the start of another school year upon us, I felt that this was a good time to let you know about an opportunity to take a Mental Health First Aid course in Darien on Friday, September 27th at Darien EMS. This course is designed for the general public, as well as those involved in any of the healthcare and first responder fields. I’ve taken the course myself twice and found it to be both informative and helpful. The instructor, Dawn Roy, is widely well-regarded and an excellent teacher.
This Mental Health First Aid course is an interactive experience that will give you key skills to help anyone developing a mental health problem, or experiencing a mental health crisis. Like CPR training, which helps a non-medical professional assist an individual following a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid training helps an individual without clinical training to assist someone experiencing a mental health crisis.
