In acknowledgment of local suicides, drug abuse cases, and school shootings across our Nation and to support healthy, growing communities, Sykes STEPS is partnering with Carolina Healthcare Systems (now referred to as Atrium Health) on an initiative to certify as many parents, teachers, and administrative staff members as we can in Mental Health First Aid by offering FREE classes. The MHFA class is an evidence-based, eight-hour course that teaches participants how to identify, understand and respond to signs of suicide, mental illness, and substance use disorders to prevent tragedies. After taking the class, people report that they have a better understanding of mental illness and feel more empowered to help others. To register for a course please complete the registration form reference below. All classes will begin at 8:00 PM and end at 5:00 PM. We advise all participants to prepare to be present throughout the entire duration of the course otherwise, you will not receive your certificate. Complete the form below to register.
