Mental Health First Aid training to be held at Wyandot Center

The Wyandot Center and PACES will be offering training on Mental Health First Aid in early May.

More information from a press release:
With accounts of signs and symptoms of mental illness aired in the daily news, have you ever wondered how you would respond to help in a situation like one of these stories – a pilot with behavioral problems, a person with road rage, a troubled teen-ager? 

Mental Health First Aid training is designed to do just this: help you recognize signs and symptoms and know what to do in a mental health crisis to help a family member, friend or person with whom you come into contact.

Wyandot Center and PACES will offer the next Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training on Thursday and Friday, May 3 and 4, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day with time for breaks and lunch.

The 12-hour program will be offered at Wyandot Center’s 1301 North 47th Street Building and is open to the community.

There is a $40 fee per each participant. Register by emailing Beth Yoder Stein at, or contact her for more information at 913-328-4633.
