A free Mental Health First Aid Training for Watertown residents age 55 and over will be held on April 30, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. at The Joyce Munger Apartments, 100 Warren St., Watertown.

Sometimes, first aid isn’t a bandage, or CPR. Sometimes, first aid is YOU!

Someone you know could be experiencing a mental illness or crisis. You can help them. You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, coworker, neighbor, or member of the community — in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to people with the signs and symptoms of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self help care.

Anyone can take the 8-hour Mental Health First Aid course — first responders, students, teachers, leaders of faith communities, parents, sisters, brothers, sons, daughters, and caring citizens.

This FREE 8 hour training includes training book, lunch and snacks.
