The Plumas County Mental Health Department is presenting Mental Health First Aid on March 31 in the Mineral Building at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds in Quincy. The free eight-hour training will run 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., and lunch is included. Accordingto the program, a person is more likely to encounter someone in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Mental Health First Aid teaches a five-step action plan to offer initial help to people with the signs and symptoms of such a crisis, and then connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social or sell-help care. The training is open to anyone: first responders, students, teachers, leaders of faith communities, human resources professionals and caring citizens, to name a few. However, attendance is limited to 30 people. The Mental Health First Aid training will be repeated in each of the four communities as follows: April 25 in Blairsden at the White Barn at the coiner of highways 70 and 89, May 2 in Greenville at the Indian Valley Community Center and May 9 in Chester at the Memorial Hall. To register contact Melissa Nickerson at the Mental Health Department: or 283-6307.

The Plumas County Department of Mental Health com r=ngs mug! is providing this training through Mental Health Services Act funding. Interim Mental Health Director Peter Livingston reported that the department will be expanding community involvement countywide as its MHSA plan is implemented. The plan was approved by the Board of Supervisors in December 2014, and it is available to view at "One of the new efforts is to bring mental health-related trainings to the community," said Livingston. "Mental Health First Aid is the first of the trainings that will be offered. The other training that we are planning for is the Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training. "Both of these trainings are funded through.the prevention and early intervention portion of the MHSA funds." The Mental Health Department is also exploring the possibility of sponsoring some individuals to attend an extended "training for trainers" in the Mental Health First Aid program. "The goal is to have a number of Plumas County citizens certified as trainers so that mental health-related trainings can be offered on an ongoing basis and to be responsive to community needs," said Livingston. "Plumas County Mental Health looks forward to working more closely with members of the community at a variety of levels, including the training opportunities." Mental Health First Aid USA is coordinated by the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare, the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and the Missouri Department of Mental Health.
