Mental Health First Aid Course in St. Lawrence County

NY FarmNet is partnering with St. Lawrence County Cooperative Extension to bring Mental Health First Aid to the area on February 28 from 8:30 am to 5 pm at SUNY Potsdam’s Barrington Student Union Fireside Lounge. Cost is $30, and includes materials and lunch. Register online https://pub.cce.cornell.edu/event_registration/main/events_landing.cfm?event=mentalhealthtraining_240 or by calling 315-379-9192 ext. 237.

This is a chance for field representatives, farm neighbors, and agency people to learn how to start a conversation with someone who seems to really be reaching out or needing some help with their emotions or mental health.

Mental Health First Aid is a public education program that introduces participants to risk factors and warning signs of mental illnesses, builds understanding of their impact, and overviews common supports.

This 8-hour course uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to offer initial help in a mental health crisis and connect persons to the appropriate professional, peer, social, and self-help care. The program also teaches the common risk factors and warning signs of specific types of illnesses, like anxiety, depression, substance use, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, and schizophrenia.
