Please Note: This is Part 1 of a two Part Training curriculum. Attendees must register and attend both dates in order to be certified in MHFA. The second date for the training is November 30th, same time frame, same location.
This training opportunity is generously sponsored by the Population Health Collaborative of WNY.
Lunch will be provided on both days of the training.
Family members and personnel working with military and families are often not aware of how to engage veterans with mental illnesses and addictions. In addition to the impact of military service on the veteran, each has a circle of family (significant other, children, parents, siblings, etc.) and friends who are also impacted by their military service. Mental Health First Aid offers a simple, proven combination of information and techniques for effective interventions. A tailored module builds upon the effectiveness of the standard Mental Health First Aid curriculum by focusing on the unique experiences and needs of the military, veteran and family population.
