Clemson University Military & Veteran Engagement is hosting Mental Health First Aid training — as part of the National Council for Mental Wellbeing — on Sept. 16 and Sept. 19 from 12-4:30 p.m. in 201 Vickery Hall. Skye Arthur-Banning and Margaret Domka will serve as instructors during the two sessions.
The course teaches participants how to recognize and act on signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. The training also enables participants with skills needed to reach out and provide support to someone who may be experiencing a mental health crisis or developing a substance use problem.
“This event is open to students, faculty, staff and community partners,” said Emily DaBruzzi, director of Military & Veteran Engagement. “Our goal is to equip participants with the knowledge and tools to identify, understand and respond to make our community stronger.”
Space is limited to the first 30 participants who sign up. National certifications will be provided to individuals who complete both sessions. Lunch will be provided both days.
