Mental Health First Aid

Our team is working hard to change the conversations surrounding mental health & substance use.  We are pleased to offer Mental Health First Aid certification courses.  For your convenience, our team provides the courses in various formats, including virtually & in-person.  Let’s make a difference right here in Greene & our surrounding communities!

This course provides you with the skills necessary to recognize and help those experiencing a mental health or substance use crisis.  This course also teaches you about recovery and resiliency – the belief that individuals experiencing these challenges can and do get better, and use their strengths to stay well.  Building this community’s resiliency is a vital piece of this department’s work in addressing the social determinants of health affecting our community’s health.
