As we head into Year 2 of the COVID-19 pandemic, it's critical that we keep looking out for one another, even if we can see the light of vaccination at the end of the proverbial tunnel. The mental health of our vulnerable senior population is as important as ever heading into year two of the pandemic. Participants learn about notable risk factors and warning signs, as well as strategies for both crisis and non-crisis situations. Join us for Mental Health First Aid - Virtual Training.
