MENTAL HEALTH TRAINING OPTIONS
Having the tools to identify when someone is in a crisis and knowing how to respond can truly save lives. Mental health education also provides an opportunity to reduce stigma by presenting the facts about mental health, debunking common myths and discussing the topic of mental health in an open, judgment-free way. That’s why an important part of Building Hope’s work is to provide mental health training to our community and empower residents of Summit County to respond to mental health issues with compassion, knowledge and the proper tools. You don’t need to be a mental health professional to help someone in crisis and our trainings provide you with all the information you need to know to help someone who is struggling.
We currently implement two evidence-based mental health trainings that are registered by the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration's (SAMHSA) National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP).
- QUESTION, PERSUADE, REFER (QPR) - one hour suicide prevention training
- MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID (MHFA) - eight hour training around major general mental illness, response to crisis and stigma reduction
COMMUNITY TRAININGS - Building Hope offers a mental health training once a quarter. If you do not see any upcoming mental health training dates on the calendar of events, please email Casey at firstname.lastname@example.org and she can give you information about our upcoming trainings.
WORKPLACE AND EMPLOYER TRAININGS: Building Hope also offers both of these trainings to businesses and workplaces. If you are interested in bringing one of these trainings into your workplace, please email Casey at email@example.com.
