  •  Mental Health First Aid Training Classes Added
    In response to public demand, additional sessions of the Mental Health First Aid training are being offered. This training demonstrates the initial help given to a person showing signs of mental illness or a mental health crisis. The eight-hour course teaches risk factors, warning signs and symptoms of mental health and substance use disorders; the effects of the illnesses and an overview of treatments; and a five-step action plan for helping someone with symptoms. Additional training sessions have been scheduled between January and June 2014. Each session is two four-hour classes. Youth courses in February and May are available for adults who work with youth.

    This training does not prepare someone to diagnose or provide treatment. It is designed to help paraprofessionals and laypersons provide support until an individual is linked to professional resources. MHFA is not recommended for licensed mental health providers.

    Registration is open until filled. Limit 20 participants per class and seats fill quickly. Visit www.alexandriava.gov/DCHS for class dates and registration. Attendees of the full eight-hour course will receive a three-year certification in MHFA. For more about the classes, contact Donielle Marshall at 703.746.3523 or donielle.marshall@alexandriava.gov. To learn more about MHFA, visit mentalhealthfirstaid.org.

Calling all Mentors! Please HELP! The Alexandria Mentoring Partnership is currently experiencing a shortage of mentors! Our City’s children need you! If you are able to mentor/tutor a child for an average of 1 hour a week, please contact the AMP Coordinator at 703-746-4144 or by email at mentoring@alexandriava.gov for more information. Thank you! 

Mentoring is proven to decrease the risk factors associated with crime, substance abuse, teen pregnancy, poor school performance and gang affiliation.
