NAMI Four County sponsored a free, 8 hour Adult Mental Health First Aid class in the fall that was attended by 21 persons. The purpose of the class was to help participants recognize when an adult might be experiencing a mental health crisis and then how to provide reassurance through nonjudgmental listening. The goal: Help the person get the appropriate professional help.
NAMI plans to offer a similar 8-hour class in the spring of 2020 that focuses on youth who may be experiencing a mental health crisis.
We would like to thank the Dennis Deeds family and friends Suicide Awareness Motorcycle Benefit and the Wauseon VFW Post for their generous support to underwrite NAMI's cost to provide this free training and the Youth Mental Health irist Aid training that we will offer next spring.
