Every December, ESAP hosts a community-wide coalition meeting, in Evanston. December is National Impaired Driving Prevention Month, and so there are conversations centered around driving distracted, under the influence etc. We will have a number of speakers sharing their expertise and knowledge on the topic. Everyone is welcome to attend!

COME, LUNCH AND LEARN WITH US!
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) USA is an 8-hour training to teach participants how to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. This class is appropriate for anyone over the age of 18 who wants to learn more about mental health problems.
The evidence behind the program demonstrates that it helps trainees identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illness and substance use disorders. In the MHFA course, you will learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help.
