Free mental health first-aid training set

The El Dorado County Health and Human Services Agency, Mental Health Division is offering an important community training series for members of the public entitled “Mental Health First-Aid.” The free, interactive training will arm the public with skills to help identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness and substance abuse disorders.

“This training is internationally recognized and has been very well received in the communities where we have provided it,” said Ren Scammon, program manager with the El Dorado County Mental Health Division. “Participants will develop skills and knowledge to help connect individuals in crisis with appropriate professional, peer and self-help care.”

The training is intended for people with a general interest in mental health issues, people who have frequent contact with the public and anyone who may be in a position to provide help to individuals experiencing distress due to stressful situations, trauma or crisis.

The mental health first-aid training series will be conducted over two days: Tuesday, March 12, and Wednesday March 13, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 681 Main Street, Suite 207 in Placerville. To be certified in Mental Health First-Aid, participants must attend both days of the training. Registration is required. Seating is limited. To register for the training, or for questions, contact Janet Stevens at 530- 621-6226, or email request to janet.stevens@edcgov.us.

    On Tuesday, March 12th at 8:00AM the Board of Supevisors will consider moving the Mental Health Department from Placerville Drive to 786 Pleasant Valley Road, Diamond Springs, CA, making the Mental Health Department difficult to access for many citizens.

    another thing to think about is the issue of the budget...Economic advisory groups want 10% of the pie--the pie is a closed system--whose slice will it come from? This advisory group is going up again on march 25--go see BOS agenda...EDEC is asking for 10%...then have been working towards this for a long time. (they were EDAC before--but they didnt do their homework and had to give it back the the Arts council) Many articles are now saying its not the gun thats a problem--its the mental heath issues behind these horrible events that are happening all over. So who needs the money more? something to think about. Maybe instead of blaming video games or weapons...we should adress the problems of mental health. But instead we let out the people in prisons and get rid of the mental facilities..and blame the weapon and a game. Who is right and who is wrong?. And what do the cuts mean? Where will the money go? One pie. Slices can be bigger or smaller--or a group can lose their slice all together. But it is a closed system.

    and one other thing--is the Mental Health facility in the way of tourism? Are you being hidden away? People watch the tot change. How do people feel--would you like our people to help are medical issues--or...is having more tourists come in good for you? Please take a moment to think. Not only have more tourist come in--but have small groups decide what color to paint...if you want it or not.
