Congratulations to our new Mental Health First Aiders!
The Pendleton Community Library is doing great things, and one of them is offering Mental Health First Aid certification classes. This fantastic group of people from all over Madison County and the surrounding area took the adult version of Mental Health First Aid, this week, We even had a few participants who will be going to instructor training! I am so glad to know that so the library cares so much about the people in the community.
Pendleton Community Library will also be hosting a Youth Mental Health First Aid seminar on August 17th from 8:30 Am to 5:30 PM. If you live or work in the area, this is a great opportunity to learn about how adolescence and mental illness look very similar and how to tell the difference, as well as what to look for and what to do until you can help a child get the professional help they need. The earlier we step in, the more likely they are to have positive outcomes, but we have to know what to look for and what to do! You can contact the Pendleton Library and register for the class, online.
