We are well into Year 2 of the COVID-19 pandemic and it's critical that we keep looking out for one another, even as vaccinations roll out across the country. The mental health of adults -- especially our vulnerable senior population -- is as important as ever. 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.
