Participants in this workshop learn how to access “free” mental health training that may be available in their jurisdictions. Having a great partnership with behavioral health providers opens the door for an assortment of hands-on training opportunities useful for interaction with those who live with mental illness and are incarcerated. Mental health first aid training is a critical block of instruction that can augment the skills already possessed by custody staff.
