This training is for non-clinical staff.
Someone you know could be experiencing a mental illness or crisis. You can help them.
You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, coworker, neighbor, or member of the community — in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to people with the signs and symptoms of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self help care. Anyone can take the 8-hour Mental Health First Aid course — first responders, students, teachers, leaders of faith communities, human resources professionals, and caring citizens.
Sometimes, the best first aid is you.
Take the course, save a life, strengthen your community.
**There will be a $30.00 fee implemented to cover the cost of materials for any person(s) registering outside of the Stark County Mental Health & Addiction Recovery’s funded providers. Payment is due prior to the first day of training. You will not be permitted to attend the training without prior payment as the manual is imperative to the course. Checks/Money Orders/Cash are accepted forms of payment. Checks can be made out to StarkMHAR. Payment can be mailed or dropped off to the StarkMHAR office during regular business hours and brought to the attention of Carrie Long.
The Opiate Task Force is a community based coalition with the purpose of reducing opiate use, abuse, overdose and deaths in Stark County. It is open to anyone interested in being a part of a group of people concerned about, and willing to address the epidemic of prescription drugs and specifically, opiates in the community and in the State of Ohio.

About the training: Since its implementation, C-SSRS helped reduce suicide rate by 65% over the first ten months in the Tennessee programs of the nation’s largest provider of outpatient community behavioral health care. Improved questioning using the C-SSRS also reduces over-identification of risk seen with measures that combine ideation and behavior and do not distinguish suicidal and non-suicidal behavior.
Asking about suicide risk cannot be the province of solely specialists if we are to have a successful National Suicide Prevention Strategy and violence reduction. Knowing that you can ask and knowing how to ask about suicide risk are two key messages that will change how many lives are saved and protected from the effects of violence. The C-SSRS is an effective and feasible tool that can be used by anyone across all sectors of society. It is part of the toolkit for Zero Suicide recommended by the National Action Alliance.
