Mental Health Professionals-R-Us

IMG_3872So, I’m just going to keep posting the stupid-ass stuff that college administrators keep sending adjunct faculty. Apparently, by completing an 8-hour workshop (for which we will  not be compensated, naturally), we adjuncts are going to help decrease the appalling number of suicides among 15-24 year olds in the United States.

MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID (MHFA) WORKSHOP

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), suicide is the second leading cause of death for 15-24 year olds. Often faculty and staff are first to identify a student in distress or in a mental health crisis. To learn how to assist an individual who may be developing a mental health problem or experiencing a crisis, The Center for Faculty & Staff Development has scheduled Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) USA workshop which provide training that can be utilized until professional treatment is obtained or the crisis resolves.

 Upon successful completion of this 8 hour workshop, participants will receive a Mental First Aid Certificate from Mental Health First Aid USA. By attending an MHFA workshop, participants will:

• Explore various types of mental illness.

• Examine risk factors and warning signs related to mental health issues.

• Learn a five-step action plan to assist individuals in crisis to connect with appropriate community resources.
