When people think of first aid, a bandage, CPR, or calling 911 are usually the first things that come to mind. But one national program is teaching that the first aid for mental health is you. Taylorville Memorial Hospital will be hosting two mental health first aid classes, with the first being on Wednesday, May 24th. The one-day course will be from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Kim Bourne, President and CEO of Taylorville Memorial Hospital, gives an overview of what the class will offer.
Bourne says almost everyone knows someone dealing with a mental health issue or stressful situation that could lead to an issue.
