Mental Health First Aid Workshop Held in Albemarle
When someone is physically injured you grab the first aid kit. But what about when they are having a mental health crisis?
Thursday, a group in Albemarle County sat down to discuss what to do. A Latino public service group called Creciendo Juntos hosted a workshop where attendees learned how to identify someone with a mental health issue and lend them a helping hand.
"It's like how to identify these issues and then be able to say you need to go here or I'll bring someone here to help you, talk to you, help you through whatever crisis or issue a person may be having,” said Gloria Rockhold , chair of Creciendo Juntos.
The workshop provided a preview of the intensive eight-hour “mental health first aid” certification course offered through Region Ten.
