Mental Health First Aid USA



We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting this event on May 16th, 2015, from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.  It will be held at the Candler Hospital  Marsh Auditorium.  There are a max of thirty spots available.  The certification provider requires a list of participants prior to May 12th, so please register early.

Mental Health First Aid is a groundbreaking public education program, which introduces participants to the risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems, builds understanding of their impact, and overviews common treatments. Those who take the 8-hour course to certify as Mental Health First Aiders learn a 5-step action plan encompassing the skills, resources, and knowledge to help an individual in crisis connect with appropriate peer, social, self-help and professional care. This program can reduce the damaging effects of mental and emotional disorders such as job loss, school dropouts, relationship issues, and drug and alcohol problems.


National program authorities train and certify instructors to teach 
the program.

The Clinical Social Work Association and the Human Services Department at Saint Leo University are pleased to announce a partnership to provide quarterly Continuing Education opportunities!  Starting on April 16th, 2015, we will be offering trainings and lunch at Saint Leo University's Savannah Center, located at 7426 Hodgson Memorial Drive. This location is across the street from Sonic on Montgomery Crossroads.  These sessions will be the second Thursday of the following months:  January, April, July, and October. These sessions will offer continuing education units through the CSWA of Savannah with a sponsored lunch by Saint Leo University. 


We look forward to working together in an environment that furthers the support of current and future social service professionals.  Encouraging the involvement of students and professors in the broader mental health community, and connecting them with future mentors will be a great benefit to students and faculty at Saint Leo University as well as to our community partners.  Providing Continuing Education and networking opportunities for professionals in social service will further the connections between Saint Leo University's Savannah Center and the community.   This free CEU apportunity and free lunch is available to the first 50 registrants, so please register early!
