Suicide Prevention School Protocol Development Training
The likelihood of schools or youth-serving agencies encountering a suicidal youth is real. Few events are more painful or potentially disruptive to the community than suicide. Protocols provide guidance on steps to take to safely assist youth and staff by providing them with direction, structure and support. This training provides important information for schools interested in developing protocols for suicide prevention, intervention and postvention.
Adult Mental Health First Aid for Public Safety Only
Mental Health First Aid is a national best-practice, evidenced-based certification course that is 8 hours in length and leads to a 3-year certification issued by the National Council on Behavioral Health. By design it is intended to mirror the idea of regular first aid by empowering individuals with just enough information to respond and help guide someone with a mental health need to the right kind of help.
There is a mandatory $5 refreshment fee for this training. The refreshment fee is non-refundable.
This training is only open to those employed by a public safety agency.
For more information on Mental Health First Aid programs, or help with registrations, please contact Carly at MHFA@namimaine.org or 207-622-5767 ext. 2312.

Supporting the recruitment and retention of rural primary care providers is a focus of the Maine AHEC Network. Evidence-based strategies include providing health profession students with positive clinical experiences in rural communities and nurturing health professions students from rural communities who are most likely to return to those communities to practice.
The Maine AHEC Network coordinates the selective mandatory four-week Maine Community Health Rotation (CHR) for third year UNE COM medical students. With more than 60 preceptors (clinical physician-educators) in Maine, students enhance their knowledge and exposure to the unique and exciting challenges of practicing primary care, especially in rural underserved communities.
The Maine AHEC Network, in collaboration with the Northern Maine AHEC has developed an “enhanced” community health rotation to attract students interested in rural health and primary care and create a rich experience that will increase the chances that students will make the decision to practice in rural Maine.
