Unlike physical conditions, symptoms of mental health and substance use problems can be difficult to detect. For friends and family members, it can be hard to know when and how to step in. As a result, those in need of mental health services often do not get them until it is too late.Just as CPR helps even those without clinical training assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid prepares participants to interact with a person experiencing a mental health crisis. Mental Health First Aiders learn a 5-step action plan that guides them through the process of reaching out and offering appropriate support.“Through this program, we hope to take the fear and hesitation out of starting conversations about mental health and substance use problems,” says Linda Rosenberg President and CEO of the National Council for Behavioral Health, which helped bring Mental Health First Aid to the U.S. in 2008. “When more people are equipped with the tools they need to start a dialogue, more people can get the help they may need.”In just ten years, Mental Health First Aid has become a full-blown movement in the United States—more than 800,000 people are certified Mental Health First Aiders, and that number is growing every day.last_img read more

Leyton Orient manager carried off field by steward who mistook him for a fan

Powered by Firework Leyton Orient’s manager Ross Embleton has been carried off field by steward who mistook him for a fan. Leyton Orient is one of the oldest clubs in England. They are currently situated at the 9th position in the League table of League 2. On Wednesday, they won a close match against Mansfield on Wednesday with a goal in the injury time and the manager started to celebrate with the players. The steward was not able to recognize the manager and he thought the manager as a fan. So he was carried off the field.Advertisement Mansfield were awarded two penalties in the first half of the match and Rose converted both of them. The comeback of Leyton Orient from that position was looking very unlikely. However, they started to make a comeback in the match in the second half. Wilkinson pulled one goal back at the 64th minute of the match. Angol scored another goal at the 78th minute of the match. Finally Drew scored the winning goal for Leyton Orient at the 96th minute of the match.Advertisement The manager was certainly excited with the Goal and that’s why he started celebrating with his own players. After that the funny incident took place at the home ground of Mansfield.Gary Lineker trolls Man Utd and José Mourinho after resounding Chelsea winAdvertisement Advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgSANTA ANITA TO REOPEN INNER EXERCISE TRACKArcadia, CA – March 7, 2019 – Starting Friday, March 8, 2019, Santa Anita will reopen its inner exercise track to all horses stabled on the grounds.  That track, about six furlongs (3/4 of a mile) in circumference, is inside both the one mile main track and seven furlong turf course at Santa Anita.  Since opening day there have been no catastrophic injuries sustained on it.Veteran trackman Dennis Moore and Dr. Mick Peterson from University of Kentucky’s Racing Surfaces Testing Lab inspected the inner exercise track. After evaluating it extensively, Moore said he’s “happy with it”.  Once it reopens, they will closely monitor that track’s condition as horses stabled at Santa Anita Park begin using it.“Like all athletes horses need to stay active, so this is a good decision for their overall health since it allows our horses to get out of their stalls and keeps them moving to aid their digestion,” said Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert.Use of the inner exercise track will be restricted to galloping or jogging only until further notice.Press Contacts:Tiffani Steer, Tiffani.Steer@stronachgroup.comMike Willman, Mike.Willman@santaanita.comlast_img read more
