Congregation Emanu El is partnering with Jewish Family Services (JFS) to host a Mental Health First Aid training. The trainings which are facilitated by nationally trained JFS instructors are provided free of charge through a generous grant from Jewish Family Service and co-sponsoring organizations. It is required that individuals attend both courses and one does not have to be affiliated with any particular community organization or Emanu El to attend. Each participant upon completing the class will receive a Mental Health First Aid certificate valid for three years from the training.

This class will teach a five-step action plan to offer initial help to people showing signs of a mental illness or in a crisis, connecting them with the appropriate professional, peer, social or self-help care. Anyone can take the eight-hour course but it is ideally designed for adults - teachers, coaches, leaders of faith communities, social workers and other caring citizens.

Registration for the class is available online at www.mentalhealthletstalk.org/firstaid or those needing assistance to register are encouraged to reach out to Gittel Francis directly.

For more information about the JFS Mental Health First Aid program, please contact Gittel Francis at gfrancis@jfshouston.org or call 713.986.7812.
