Free Mental Health Trainings Offered by Geminus
The Geminus Corporation will offer two free mental health-related training courses at the Crown Point location in September. Space is limited, and registration is required.
Mental Health First Aid
September 9 from 9-3 p.m.
Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness and substance use disorders. This training gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem and help connect them to the appropriate care. This course is intended for adult participants.
Please include an email address for pre-course work. A certificate will be emailed after the course once the post-course online quiz and evaluation have been completed.

September 17 from 10 -12 p.m.
QPR (Question, Persuade, and Refer) Gatekeeper Training for Suicide Prevention is a 2-hour educational program designed to teach lay and professional “gatekeepers” the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to respond.
