CORTLAND, N.Y. — Join NY FarmNet & CCE Cortland for a free Mental Health First Aid Training for farmers, agribusiness workers, and anyone who interacts with the agricultural community on Wednesday October 19th from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm (lunch is included). The training will be located at the Albright Grange in East Homer NY – registration by October 11th is required.
The course, taught by instructors with a background in agriculture, will help to create a stronger level of support and acceptance around mental health challenges within the farming community. Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack, mental health first aid helps you assist someone from experiencing a mental health or substance abuse related crisis.
