One of the trainings we try to have all of our volunteers take is Mental Health First Aid. It is a great training. We’re pleased to see that Empower Idaho and U of I have teamed up to bring this to town on May 1. There is usually a cost, but this appears to be free. We encourage everyone reading this to register. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/mental-health-first-aid-tickets-59125977390
