PAL Coalition offering seven Mental Health First Aid trainings in 2018

The PAL Coalition, an initiative of Family & Children’s Place, is planning seven Mental Health First Aid Trainings for adults during 2018. Trainings, which last from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., take place at the agency’s Family Service Center at Fifth and Kentucky streets.

The goal of the course is to increase participants’ understanding of mental health issues and treatments, connect more people with care, and reduce stigma – helpful information given that many people with mental disorders delay seeking help, but are more open to getting help when encouraged by someone they trust.

Course participants will learn the signs and symptoms of different types of mental illnesses, how they can affect a person’s daily life and how they can help when someone is experiencing these challenges. This is important because members of the public are more likely to have contact with someone in a mental health crisis, such as being suicidal, and want to know how to respond.

Cost for each course is $45. To pre-pay with credit card, call Tomy Baker at Family & Children’s Place, 502-855.6048, or send a check to Tomy Baker, Family & Children’s Place, 525 Zane St., Louisville, KY 40203.
