May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and in an effort to educate the campus community, Metropolitan State is offering Mental Health First Aid.  This training is much like regular first aid or CPR, and designed to give people the skills to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis.  The course uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to recognize and respond to the warning signs of specific illnesses.

Training is limited to 30 people per session. Register for the training here.

· 2 half-days: 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., May 2  and May 4 in the Student Center, room 101, Saint Paul Campus. Light breakfast will be served both days.

• 4 to 5 p.m., Tuesdays, May 9, 16, 23, and 30, in Student Center, Room 101, Saint Paul Campus.

Film screening: “Depression: Out of the Shadows”

Many Americans are keeping an important, possibly deadly secret: depression. Approximately 15 million American adults live with this devastating disease which affects all age, race, gender, and socioeconomic groups. Through the voices and stories of people living with depression and interviews with scientists, Depression: Out of the Shadows provides a portrait of the disease never before seen on American television.

• 5 to 7 p.m., May 17 and May 25; Film Space auditorium, Founders Hall, Saint Paul Campus.
