MHAST is committed to provide mental health education in our community to reduce the stigma associated with a mental illness. We share our expertise in the following ways:
Crisis Intervention Team Training (CIT)
MHAST facilitated their 2023 Crisis Intervention Team Training in May. The 40-hour course trained over 20 law enforcement professionals in Broome County. We collaborate with the Broome County Office of Mental Health and other organizations to conduct this comprehensive training. Please contact us for more information about future CIT training/offerings.
Mental Health First Aid Training
MHAST offers Mental Health First Aid training focused on both youth and adults. Upon completion of this training, you will be equipped with the skills to recognize and respond to mental health or substance use challenges in our community. Please contact us for more information about future Mental Health First Aid trainings.
MHAST is happy to provide education, information on our services, and mental health presentations to local agencies. We appreciate opportunities to participate in local health and resource fairs to support local organizations and to share our services in our community. Please contact us to request a presentation or invite us to a resource fair.
If you are in need of support, our Peer Support Warm Line is available 24/7 by calling 607-240-7291.
