A full-day Mental Health First Aid Training for Nonprofit EDs, CEOs, Managers & Supervisors was held on September 13th through a collaborative effort between WJCS and NPW. 

This important opportunity taught participants how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental health and substance use challenges among adults. Just like CPR for physical health, Mental Health First Aid equips people with the tools and understanding to respond to mental health challenges and crises. Thank you to the program instructors Paula Santa-Donato and Quaneisha Wilson.
