This 8-hour training was developed due to the fact that mental health diagnoses – such as depression, anxiety, impulse control and misuse of alcohol and other drugs – are shockingly common in the United States. In fact, more than one in four American adults will have a mental health problem in a year. The National Council on Community Behavioral Healthcare has begun working with communities throughout the nation, including the McHenry, Boone, and Winnebago Counties to implement Mental Health First Aid to arm the public with skills to help individuals who are developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. The clinical and qualitative evidence behind the program demonstrates that it helps the public better identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness, thus improving outcomes for individuals experiencing these illnesses.
About The Host: The purpose of the Tommy Corral Memorial Foundation is to expand understanding, empathy and provide supportive services in our community for those living with mental illness and/or been affected by suicide.
