I have contacted SCFAST and requested that they have training for mental health awareness. These are the dates for those trainings. The First training set is 4 hours long and is a good course introduction. The second set of trainings is 2, 8 hour days which will teach responders how to identify peers who are going through stressful times. It also teaches skills for assisting those peers with dealing with stressful events and dealing with daily stress.
