Today I took an adult mental health first aid class.
It was pretty cool.
I had learned some of the facts and information before, but not some of the practical application-type stuff.
I really liked it.
It covered a HUGE swath of info and went a full eight hours, (with a few breaks).
I was glad to be able to participate.
I am now “mental health first-aid” certified.
It just felt good to get out in the community and do something. Especially something that might help someone.
I appreciated that.
Some of the content was kind of triggering however, and I had to sort of compartmentalize that, but I survived.
I’m just really kind of fried.
I’m proud of myself for sitting there all day though. I didn’t freak out once.
