Join Steel Smiling for the 2nd event for Mental Health Awareness Month. The training is presented in participation with WareHouse Consulting, the Jeron X. Grayson Community Center, Pittsburgh Mercy, Allegheny Health Choices, Inc., Staunton Farm Foundation, and the SW Pennsylvania Mental Health First Aid Collaborative.
This 8-hour training will be taught in 4-hour increments over 2 days. Participants must attend both days (May 8th and May 10th from 1-5 PM) to become certified.
After completing the course, participants will know how to apply the Mental Health First Aid plan in situations when someone is experiencing:
- Panic attacks
- Suicidal thoughts or behaviors
- Non-suicidal self-injury
- Acute psychosis (hallucinations or delusions)
- Overdose or withdrawal from alochol or druge use
- Reaction to a traumatic event
The sessions will occur at the Jeron X. Grayson Community Center and pre-registration is required. They’ll be facilitated by Kellen Hill, Program Administration of Prevention Services with Pittsburgh Mercy. If special accommodations are needed, please share your insight, as Steel Smiling would like “everyone to understand that their presence is welcomed in our shared spaces.”
