May is Mental Health Awareness Month — why not take a class in Mental Health First Aid?
One in every 5 people has some kind of mental illness such as schizophrenia, bi-polar disorder, or chronic depression and just like any illness, a mental illness can make things hard for your physical health, relationships, family, or job.
The good news is mental illnesses can be treated and recovery is possible. If you or someone you know has a mental illness, network180 may be able to help. More than 50,000 individuals in Kent County are served annually through network180 and its network of care.
If you or someone you care about is struggling with a mental illness, substance use disorder, or is living with a developmental disability, help may only be a few clicks or a phone call away. The network180 Access Center Helpline is open 24-hours a day, every day of the year. Please call 1.800.749.7720 to talk about your situation before you go to the network180 Access Center.
The Adult Mental Health First Aid course is appropriate for anyone 18 years and older who wants to learn how to help a person who may be experiencing a mental health related crisis or problem. Topics covered include anxiety, depression, psychosis, and addictions.
