Mental Health First Aid Information Session at Library

The Advocate is collaborating with Mental Health and Recovery for Licking and Knox Counties and Mental Health America of Licking County to host a short information session about a new Mental Health First Aid program.

The free daylong training is open to individuals, local businesses and organizations who want to better understand how to recognize and assist people experiencing symptoms of mental illnesses. The Oct. 29 information session — from 7 to 8 p.m. — will provide a sampling of the full training.

The event will be conducted in Meeting Room A at the main branch of the Licking County Library, 101 W. Main St., Newark. It’s free, and refreshments will be served.
