Mental Health First Aid is a course that teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. The training gives you the skills you 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.
Whether it is an illness, lay off, divorce, criminal charges due to poor choices, physical, mental, emotional abuse or sabotage everyone has been or knows someone who has direct or indirect experience with these circumstances.
Take Two is just one way VIRTUE gives attention to triumphs and actions post tragedy as oppose to keeping the person, challenge or the mistake at the forefront. It is NOT a platform to promote martyrdom, to be judge or jury, to condone, exonerate or defend. Our intention is to engage challenging connections in order to change the narrative. It is in the spirit of inclusivity and forgiveness that we connect with these individuals and or organizations.
