Mental Health Priorities on the MTSU Campus and Special Training | May, Mental Health Month, MTSU, Murfreesboro, WGNS

Mental health issues are a growing concern in our society. MTSU is diving into the issue by helping those closest to them. Cynthia Chafin, Associate Director for Community Programs for the MTSU Center for Health and Human Services stated...



The local university's Center for Health and Human Services launched the Mental Health First Aid project on campus earlier this spring. Thus far the effort has resulted in multiple workshops over the past two months providing two-year certifications to almost 100 students, staff and faculty.

Organizers say 39 additional workshops will be scheduled on campus by Sept. 30, 2021, with a goal of reaching up to 800 members of the MTSU community. Each workshop lasts eight hours and is provided free of charge to participants.
