presented by Pittsburgh Mercy

Mental Health First Aid is a public education program that introduces participants to risk factors and warning signs of mental illnesses, builds understanding of their impact, and overviews common supports. This 8-hour course uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to offer initial help in a mental health crisis and connect persons to the appropriate professional, peer, social, and self-help care. The program also teaches the common risk factors and warning signs of specific types of illnesses, like anxiety, depression, substance use, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, and schizophrenia.

Sometimes first aid isn't a bandage, or CPR or calling 911. Sometimes, first aid is YOU.  A person you know could be experiencing a mental health or substance use problem. Learn an action plan to help. You are more likely to encounter someone in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Learn how to help a friend, family member, coworker or neighbor in need. Get trained in Mental Health First Aid. Take a course. Save a life. Strengthen your community. For more information, visit www.MentalHealthFirstAid.org.

$10 non-refundable registration to cover the cost of lunch.  Send check to the ACLA office in advance of workshop.  

A minimum of 15 people required for this course to be held. 
Registration
must be completed by noon on September 5th because of the materials needed for this course.

misc_none 6:00 PM  -  8:00 PM Strategies to Manage Library Director Performance Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Laurie Anderson   4129211123   andersonla@einetwork.net
   

Many nonprofit board members recognize that it is important to conduct performance reviews, but often performance evaluations are not conducted unless there is a problem to address. Some boards rate their directors only based on financial performance. Nonprofit executives should have a balanced set of goals based on the vision, mission and direction of the organization; the board should support the executive in achieving those goals and formally evaluate performance on an annual basis. This workshop covers the “step by step” methods to set performance criteria, support the executive director to ensure their successful performance, and how to conduct an annual performance evaluation.

Speaker: Debra Thompson is President of Strategy Solutions, a consulting firm that dedicated to facilitating creative solutions to ensure the sustainability of public, private and nonprofit organizations and creating healthy communities.
