Mental Aid-First Aid Training

Back by popular demand is the Mental Aid-First Aid training.

Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. This 8-hour training gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem and help connect them to the appropriate care.

As part of the conference, participants have the opportunity to participate in the training conducted by Jacquline (Jacqui) Filbeck, MSW. Jacqui earned her Bachelor of Social Work degree from Limestone College before obtaining her Mater of Social Work degree from the University of Southern California in 2012. She has began her social work career working with young mothers and pregnant adolescents, in residential and community settings. Jacqui is dedicated professional who has also worked in the alcohol and drug, domestic violence, sexual assault fields, and in psychiatric hospitals. Jacqui is fully clinically licensed therapist who has been a Mental Health First Aid trainer for a year and a half and provides CEU trainings on a number of topics.

Jacqui transitioned to social work following a ten year career in the United States Air Force, where she volunteered with the military SARC office, worked numerous humanitarian missions, deployed to Iraq, Kuwait, and Korea. In her spare time, Jacqui enjoys time with her family: husband, children, and dog Willow. As her part of her self-care, Jacqui and her husband complete half-marathons and have a goal to complete one in all 50 states, Washington D.C., U.S. Territories, and as many countries and Disney races as possible. To date, they completed eight states together and Jacqui has completed nine half marathons. Jacqui is currently training for her first full marathon to celebrate her 40th birthday.
