The mental health crisis in our nation is daily fare in the news cycle that the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated.

To educate and equip our campus community, Nyack College Counseling Center Director, Maggie Labocki, has announced a Mental Health First Aid course that teaches how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental health and substance use challenges among adults. She will teach three blended courses this summer. The class is two hours of self-paced work prior to the live instruction, which will be held virtually on two days for 3.5 hours via Zoom.

The course is valued at $170, but is being offered at no charge through a grant awarded to Nyack College by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, a branch of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Nyack staff members should clear with their supervisors before enrolling in the course that involves instruction during the regular work day.
