Monarch is partnering with Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) USA to bring a community service to the region. Just as CPR training helps a person with no medical or clinical training help someone who is suffering a heart attack, MHFA training can equip a person to assist someone experiencing a mental health crisis, such as contemplating suicide or inflicting harm on others.

In both situations, the goal is to help support an individual in crisis until appropriate professional, peer or social help arrives.

The training will be 8 a.m.–5 p.m., Friday, Oct. 18 at Cardinal Innovations Healthcare Solutions, 4855 Milestone Ave., Kannapolis.
