Mental Health First Aid Certification offered
The Sandwich Council on Aging and the Sandwich
Police Department are offering a training program to the public on ways to
assist those dealing with mental health issues. The course will teach
techniques to recognize symptoms of mental health problems, how to offer
initial help, and how to guide a person to appropriate treatments and other
supportive help. The class is not
intended to replace a licensed therapist.
The certification is offered in two four hour
sessions from 1:30 – 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 6th and
Thursday, September 13th and is limited to 20 participants. A
certificate of completion will be given to those who complete both classes and
pass the final exam.
There is a $20.00 registration fee which covers the
cost of materials.
Please call the Sandwich Council on Aging at (508)

by cash or check. Checks should be made
payable to the Sandwich Council on Aging.
