Mental Health First Aid, a program that started in Australia 10 years ago and was launched in the U.S. about two years ago. Its purpose is to train community members to identify and respond to mental health crises until professional help can be obtained.
Linden Oaks at Edward is one of the first organizations in the Midwest certified by the program to train community members to be Mental Health First Aid responders.
Linden Oaks has spent the last several months introducing the Mental Health First Aid program to the community. The response has been overwhelmingly positive. We have the support of and are partnering with at least 30 key community groups, including city and county government, police, fire, social services, education, churches and others.
Now, it’s time to begin the training and certification process for our community. The first sessions will be held in April.
Mary Lou Mastro, President, Linden Oaks at Edward will explain why the Mental Health First Aid program is important for Naperville and how you can sign up for the training and certification program to become a Mental Health First Aid responder.
