Event Details:

Mental Health First Aid is an award-winning training program for members of the public with little-to-no knowledge of mental health issues, and teaches how to support someone in a mental health crisis situation or who is developing a mental disorder. Mental health first aid training can assist in early intervention and in the on-going community support of people with mental illnesses. The 12-hour training is divided into two six-hour days. Please note that you must attend the entire 12-hour course in order to receive certification.

Topics discussed during the training include depression, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, nonsuicidal self-injury and substance use disorders.

The cost of the training is free but you MUST pre-register by contacting Sue.Readnour@aspenpointe.org. The usual $50 charge is waived due to a generous donation for this training initiative. A manual and lunch is provided.

Since 1875...


AspenPointe has empowered clients, enriched lives and embraced purpose through behavioral health services, counseling services, career services, substance abuse treatment, employment, education, housing, jail diversion/reintegration and care management.

One of the largest nonprofits in Colorado Springs, AspenPointe traces its roots back to 1875 when we were called the Springs Relief Society. That organization, which delivered coal, lumber and clothing to the needy, was the genesis of what today is a comprehensive and integrated system of care that addresses the overall wellness of each client whether they need behavioral health services, counseling services or career services.

We have 12 organizations that serve more than 30,000 individuals and families each year through behavioral health services, counseling services, career services, education, housing, jail diversion/reintegration, telephonic wellness and care management.

We collaborate with clergy, educators, employers, other health and human service agencies, the legal/criminal justice system, other behavioral health providers, insurers, and many other organizations to leverage our collective resources in order to better our communities and the lives of its residents.

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit funded largely by Medicaid, state and federal grants, local government contracts, and generous donations.
