DERRY — Mental Health First Aid is a national training program — like regular first aid or CPR — designed to give people the skills to help someone who is developing a mental health or substance use problem or is experiencing a mental health or substance use crisis.
While military service often fosters resilience, some service members may experience mental health or substance use challenges. Mental Health First Aid is a valuable resource that can make a difference in the lives of veterans and their families.
The Center for Life Management will be presenting a Mental Health First Aid course for military members, veterans, their families and those who work directly with military members. The 8-hour training course will be held on Friday, June 22, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Center for Life Management, 10 Tsienneto Road, Derry. Upon completion of the course, participants will be trained and certified as Mental Health First Aid responders. There is no fee to attend, but registration is required.
