This 8-hour training gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem and help connect them to appropriate care.

The course will teach you how to apply the ALGEE action plan:
· Assess for risk of suicide or harm
· Listen non-judgmentally
· Give reassurance and information
· Encourage appropriate professional help
· Encourage self-help and other support strategies

7:45 AM - 12:30 PM

Volunteer Opportunity: Sporting Clays to Cure MS

​The USF CERT will be teaming up with Team PANGO to raise money in support of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a potentially disabling disease that affects the brain and spinal cord. Around 400,000 people are living with MS in the United States and approximately 2.1 million individuals have the condition worldwide.

We will need 10 volunteers to act as "Trappers" to help the event run smoothly. The "Trappers" are the individuals at each clay shooting station that launch the clays for the shooters and record the shooter's results. 

Start time is 7:45am and the event will end around 12:30pm. Coffee and donuts will be provided in the morning and lunch after the event. In addition to complete instruction on the Trapper duties, eye and hearing protection will be provided. 

Raffle opportunities will be offered that our volunteers can be a part of as well, with your donation for ticket purchases going to fight MS. So ask family and friends to donate to the cause for a few raffle tickets if you like!

This will be a really fun event and a chance for two organizations, with great causes, to support each other!
