Taylorville Memorial Hopsital wrapped up another Mental Health First Aid Course at the end of July. TMH holds 3 different courses in the same year, and has been doing so for about 2 years. Penny Shehadeh, the hospitals nurse educator, says holding this event is very important in regards to mental health.
The 8 hour course teaches how to handle situations when people know someone suffering from mental illness. For instance, how to handle someone thinking about suicide.
The next session for the course is September 18th.
