|Recurring Event (See all)
Weekly

Contact of Mercer County offers support to people in crisis via phone, chat and text. Contact is seeking volunteers for the crisis and suicide hotline. Fall training courses start on Tues., Sept. 11 and run weekly through Nov. 11 with no class on Oct. 16. Sessions 1 to 6 are open to everyone, without a commitment to volunteer. After finishing Sessions 1 to 6, you will have met the prerequisites for Contact’s higher level of training in Sessions 7-10. Following Session 10 there is an apprenticeship obligation taking calls on Contact’s hotline and National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-8255). For those completing session 10, additional training will be optional for those who wish to volunteer taking chats and texts online.

The course fee is $35 for Sessions 1 to 6, which includes 2 books and the nationally recognized “Mental Health First Aid Training.” There is no additional charge for Sessions 7 to 10 and the apprenticeship. For Information or to register, visit www.contactofmercer.org  and 609-883-2880

Classes available at 9:30 a.m. and 7 p.m. Classes are held at the Pennington United Methodist Church, 60 S. Main St., Pennington.
