Mental Health First Aid Training
March 28, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
**Event cancelled – updated 03/15/20**
OKRID is excited to announce registration is currently OPEN for the following workshop!
You can learn more about this training at: www.mentalhealthfirstaid.org.
We know that our members work with lots of people in varying roles – as interpreters, teachers, volunteers, paraprofessionals, and more. Often, especially with Deaf students and clients, we may be one of the first few who notice changes demeanor, behavior, appearance, or even comments that could indicate depression, suicidal thoughts, or other mental crises that person may be dealing with. Oftentimes those comments are made to the people with whom the person communicates the most easily, and we want you to know how to appropriately respond if that happens.
This grant funded training is FREE – but you have to be a member of OKRID! Register for the workshop, and if you’re not sure if your membership is current, let us know and we can check for you. If you’ve lapsed, no worries, we can get you reinstated quickly. If you haven’t ever joined – we’d love to have you! Our memberships range from $10 for students, $15 for voting members, and $25 for non-voting members. A membership for 2019-2020 will last though June, so you’ll be all set for the conference too!
We are applying for .8 CEUs, so those are pending. We will update as the approvals are returned. We will request for QAST, RID, and BEI CEUs.
The workshop caps and 30 participants, first come first serve! The training will be taught by OKRID Board member and Certified Mental Health First Aid Trainer Traci Prince, Certified MHFA Trainer Caitlin Potter, and Certified MHFA Trainer and grant coordinator Amy Ross.
