Taking a Step Towards Better Mental Health with a Successful Mental Health First Aid Course

Updated: Mar 23, 2023

Grooming Resources and Opportunities Takes a Step Towards Better Mental Health with a Successful Mental Health First Aid Class.

Recently, Grooming Resources and Opportunities hosted a Mental Health First Aid Class at The Bar Ber Shop located in Raleigh, NC on February 6th, 2023. This event was an enormous success, with a great turnout and participants leaving with valuable information and resources. The event was made even more impactful with a special speech from Dr. Rodney Harris, who spoke about the different issues related to mental health within minority communities. His insights were enlightening, and attendees were grateful for the opportunity to hear from such a knowledgeable and passionate speaker.

Mental health is just as important as physical health, and the Mental Health First Aid Class taught attendees how to recognize and respond to signs of mental health challenges. This training is essential for anyone who wants to support individuals who may be experiencing a mental health crisis. The participants were highly engaged and expressed their gratitude for the opportunity to learn about mental health first aid. They appreciated the knowledgeable instructors and hands-on approach to the training.

The success of this event has solidified our determination to continue offering Mental Health First Aid Classes not only in our surrounding areas but across the state. We believe that everyone should have access to resources and information that can help improve their mental well-being. We are proud to be part of a movement that prioritizes mental health and takes steps towards destigmatizing mental health challenges. Our goal along with The Bar Ber Shop is to empower individuals and communities with the tools they need to support their mental health. Stay tuned for more updates and events from Grooming Resources and Opportunities as we continue to work towards a better and more mentally healthy future.
