Together, we can learn the skills to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. The Mental Health Association of Monmouth County, in partnership with Crossroads, the Middletown Alliance, Middletown Department of Health and Human Services, Middletown Police Department, and the County of Monmouth, is pleased to offer Mental Health First Aid Training on two consecutive Tuesday evenings in May. During the class attendees will learn how to help people developing a mental illness or who are in a crisis. Sessions will be held May 9 and May 16 from 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm at Croydon Hall, 900 Leonardville Road. Participants must pre-register and attend both evenings. This program is free thanks to a grant from the Monmouth County Office of Mental Health Addiction Services.
