Mental Health Initiative

Learn about DMC’s Mental Health First Aid Course, and how it is branching out to help other companies in our industry.

Quote

This training was very informative and helpful it really captured the stigma of Mental Health and how people need more education. Working in the healthcare setting we need to be trained as much as possible to be able to better provide support to clients and their loved ones. I feel that through education it can help with being more proactive going forward. Having this training spread to schools and also colleges could help young people to understand mental health problems and disorders. It was a training that was extremely interactive and very well organized.
