Mental Health First Aid
$20 suggested (sliding scale), all ages, limited to 15 participants*
Saturday March 23rd & Sunday March 24th, 11am-4pm
This eight-hour course (broken up into two four hour sessions with breaks, so plan to be here 4.5-5 hours both days) from the National Council of Behavioral Health is aimed at destigmatizing mental health and substance use challenges and providing information to community members that empowers them to help folks in crisis.
Provides a 3 year certification for individuals who are 18+ and complete the course. Please note that only individuals who are 18+ will be able to be certified, but we encourage people of all ages to register, attend, participate, and learn this valuable information! Even if you're a minor, you'll still receive the manual.
PLEASE REGISTER HERE to participate: https://squareup.com/store/marrow/item/mental-health-first-aid-registration
or come by the space to register in-person with cash.
Registration is sliding scale, please contribute what you can.
Registration will be capped at 15 participants. Please register early. We'll have a small wait list.
(The fee is to cover the guidebooks, which all participants receive, and cost $20. Most places that offer this course charge $60-105 per participant. We strive to keep this important information accessible. Ingry is donating her time, and Marrow is donating the use of our space. Any additional funding raised will be put toward future programming, so we can continue to never turn anyone away for lack of funds.)
The facilitator, Ingry, will also hang around afterwards if anyone wants to discuss a particular topic in-depth or bring up something that wasn't covered. She offered this course at Marrow in March and everyone found it to be super informative. Ingry also teaches this course in a relatively uniquely inclusive and open-minded way.
