You may know CPR and the Heimlich maneuver. You can call 911. But can you administer first aid in a metal health crisis?
Mental Health First Aid training is being offered free from the Dunn County Health Improvement Project to residents and employees of the county. The project’s goal is to help move the community toward wide-scale knowledge of behavioral health issues and how to address them.
The free Adult Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training takes place on Dec. 4 and 5 for four hours each evening. Registration is open for anyone who is interested. Both training dates start at 5 p.m. and end at 9 p.m. Late arrivals or early departures will not qualify for certification.
Seating is limited. To register, visit http://smetzger3.wixsite.com/dunncountymhfa/register-for-a-course. Questions can be directed to Sheli Jo Metzger, prevention coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org. or 715-235-4537, ext. 224.
