Main Calendar

  1. Mental Health First Aid Training

    October 24, 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM @ Advocate BroMenn Medical Center

    Sometimes First Aid isn't a bandage, or CPR, or calling 911. Sometimes, First Aid is YOU! You are more likely to encounter someone in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. The Mental Health First Aid class 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 care. Mental Health First Aid is for anyone— parents, neighbors, students, first responders, teachers, leaders of faith communities, human resources professionals, and caring citizens. This Mental Health First Aid course is offered through a collaboration with Advocate BroMenn Medical Center, the Center for Human Services, & the McLean County Health Department.

    October 23, 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM @ Hawthorne Suites by Wyndham - Champaign - (217) 398-3400

    While this workshop will provide a brief overview of play therapy with information about how to strengthen the child-therapist relationship, we will also focus on how to integrate the parents into the picture in a positive way. Without parent buy-in the therapy is often slower to progress or even abruptly ended.
