Mental Health First Aid USA

Start Date: 2019/02/11

Description: Pepper and I represented HOPE at this all day training for Community Health and Community Mental Health Organizations in the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula Region. About 60 people were present from 10 agencies. I spoke briefing about HOPE, passed out literature, and introduced Pepper to all of the participants. Pepper and I then took the training and participated in the training and comfort exercises. Pepper was a star. Everyone wanted to be the person counseled by Pepper and me. Everyone was very enthused that HOPE Services were available in our area. People could not believe how quiet and well behaved Pepper was for 8 hours. Several heads of the organizations present said they would keep HOPE in mind
