Mental health first aid training opportunity; sign up by Oct. 25

LLCC Student Success is happy to announce a great training opportunity for you: Mental Health First Aid! Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training covers the following topics: common signs and symptoms of mental health challenges; common signs and symptoms of substance use challenges; how to interact with a person in crisis; how to connect a person with help; and expanded content on trauma, substance use and self-care. Many of the staff in Student Services have been through this training and feel that it is very useful in gaining some of the tools needed to recognize signs/symptoms of mental health challenges. We all play an important role in helping identify, support, and refer students that may need additional assistance. This training is not intended to make anyone a counselor; rather, we believe that this provides great tools to help folks that are uniquely positioned in student-facing roles to feel more confident in providing initial support.

We have two training opportunities for you, both via Zoom, conducted by a certified MHFA trainer from Heritage Behavioral Health Center. There are only 20 spots for each training, so get signed up as soon as possible. For the training, there is 1-2 hours of required pre-work that needs to be completed prior to your training date. If the pre-work is not completed, you will not be able to attend the training. The pre-work is an online module, including watching a webinar and pre-test. The 2 opportunities are listed below. Please note that you will have to commit to be present during the entire training.

Monday, Nov. 15 (Zoom)
9 a.m.-4 p.m. (includes breaks and lunch break)

Thursday, Dec. 16 (Zoom)
9 a.m.-4 p.m. (includes breaks and lunch breaks)

If interested, sign up for a training time here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0F4DACAC2AA6FDCE9-mental

The deadline to sign up is noon on Oct. 25. After you sign up, you will receive a confirmation email; and you will receive information about completing the pre-work from the trainer before your training date.
