Taylorville Memorial Hospital will be hosting a session to train community members how to identify and respond to those showing signs of mental illness and substance abuse.
The Mental Health First Aid training session will be held on March 20th on the second floor of the hospital in the TMH annex. It will begin at 8 a.m. that morning.
Mental Health First Aid teaches signs of addictions and mental illnesses, a five-step action plan to assess a situation and help, the impact of mental health and substance use disorders, and local resources and where to turn for help.
There is a 16-dollar, 95-cent registration fee to cover the cost of training materials. You can register by calling 824-1675 or online. We have a link to that site here.
