Trinity UMC Helps Organize Mental Health First Aid Training
Written By Dianne Akins Iglehart, Trinity United Methodist Church
On Saturday, August 5th several congregants and congregations received an 8 hour Mental Health First Aid Training held at Sat. James Episcopal Church and conducted by NAMI of The Greater Houston Area, and Eagleton Consultants Firm of Houston. The captive audience was led by Mrs. Angelina Hudson, the Education Director of NAMI, and Mr. Gary Eagleton of Eagleton Consultants.
They were a dynamic team of experts that gave all participants a strategic applicable toolkit of strategies to use to help individuals and families that need resources and appropriate actions to take to get professional assistance, heal and reconcile. The training was a great start and example of ecumenical sharing of ideas, information, needs, and collective resources to better serve our families, congregations, neighboring communities and mission fields. It only takes a spark to get a fire going!
We are fired up and ready to serve. We hope to keep this momentum going in the Third Ward Community.
