Mental Health Training

The Great Falls Public Library is hosting a full day of Mental Health First Aid from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 28.

Space is limited and registration is required by emailing or calling 406-453-0349.

Mental Health First Aid is a skills-based training course that teaches participants about mental health and substance-use issues. Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis. In the Mental Health First Aid course, you learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help.

Free Property Tax Clinic

The library is hosting a free Property Tax Clinic from 4-6 p.m. Sept. 29 in the Cordingley Room, which is in the basement.

The clinic will have trained volunteers to answer questions about the state property tax rebate or assist in claiming your rebate.

The clinic is in partnership with Great Falls Rising.
