Making Connections for Mental Health and Wellbeing for Men and Boys

NALHD staff joined other grantees in Oakland in November 2015

Through our Making Connections project, NALHD is convening community conversations in each of the 16 NALHD member districts to learn how communities can better help returning Veterans and their family members with what they need to thrive as parents, spouses, and grandparents. These conversations will result in a statewide action plan and assist in the sustainability of our VetSET program.

Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour course that teaches how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. The training gives participants the skills they need to reach out and provide initial help and support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem or experiencing a crisis.
