Mental Health First Aid Class

Sunshine Swallers, one of the Harris County’s next generation of outstanding young criminal-defense lawyers (a true believer in the best sense), is working with Suzette Sova from the Harris County Mental Health and Mental Retardation Authority (MHMRA) to arrange a 12-hour Mental Health First Aid course.

The course looks like an excellent start for those of us who have to deal with mentally ill humans in our person, professional, or public lives (and if you think that doesn’t cover you, it undoubtedly covers those who have to deal with you). It’s available to everyone, and might be just the ticket to avoiding situations in which undertrained cops dispense 9mm crisis intervention.

Email Sunshine if you’re interested.

  1. This sounds like it would be a great course for college students too. There is a lot of stress there, and it might help kids seek help. Thanks for sharing. I am going to see if perhaps our courts would consider it. Anna
