The Taylorville Memorial Hospital Foundation is covering the costs of a Mental Health First Aid Class that focuses on youth training. Mental Health First Aid-Youth is an 8-hour certification course open to the public. It presents an overview of mental illness and substance use disorder with a focus on youth. Taylorville Memorial Hospital Foundation Executive Director Raedena Ryan, who is not a mental health physician, does support the hospital and knows that this is an important program.
If you are interested in registering for the course, visit taylorvillememorial.org/foundation/events/mental-health-first-aid or call 217-707-5250.
While this course is designed for people who work with children or are completing mental health first aid training, Ryan says this class is open for anyone.
The class is set for May 18th and you must be preregistered. For more information visit www.taylorvillememorial.org.
