Mental Health First Aid Training
Organized by: Melissa Fain
Hello, my name is Melissa. I am an ordained minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in good standing. I have an online ministry, Fig Tree Christian, and I am a mod in the subreddit, /r/Christianity. Mental health comes up quite frequently online. The Christian Church in Georgia will be offering Mental Health first aid this August. This is not training to become a certified therapist. I will not be able to offer long term care. Like traditional first aid, this will give me immediate actions to take if I see symptoms where someone would need mental first aid. Helping me with this training will ultimately help the Fig Tree community and, more importantly right now, the /r/Christianity community.
