The “American Soldier” Play to be Performed at Tupelo Music Hall
“The American Soldier” is based on real stories and accounts from soldiers' letters written from the American Revolution through current day Afghanistan. It reveals the struggles American soldiers face at war and their internal struggles to come back home. The show strives to help us understand how and why it is so difficult for men and women in the armed services to re-enter our pedestrian life when they come home. The American Soldier is a veteran-themed play, but it is also an American story and a human story. The performance is being sponsored by the Integrated Delivery Network 4 / Network4Health.
Date: Monday, June 17
Time: 7:00 to 10:00 pm
Where: Tupelo Music Hall, Derry
Mental Health First Aid Training
If you encountered someone in emotional crisis—a co-worker, family member, neighbor or someone in the community— would you know what to do to help? CLM in Derry is offering a Mental Health First Aid training to help improve mental health literacy and help participants to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness.
Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to people with the signs and symptoms of mental illness or in a crisis and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social or self-help care. Anyone can take the 8-hour Mental Health First Aid course— human resource professionals, business owners, first responders, teachers, students, leaders in faith communities and any caring citizen.
The course will be co-facilitated by Celia Felsenberg, LICSW, CLM Director of Strategic Development and Peter Reinertsen, LCMHC, CLM Director Adult Clinical Services and Access to Care, both certified Mental Health First Aid trainers. According to Felsenberg, "We are more likely to find someone in emotional distress rather than someone experiencing a heart attack, yet most people are not prepared to respond. Public health efforts have aimed to teach people CPR, the Heimlich or the use of 911 in emergencies, and now we have the Mental Health First Aid program for helping people recognize when a person is experiencing a mental health crisis and how best to respond. Anyone of us could face this scenario with a family member, friend, co-worker, neighbor or just someone you encounter in the community."
