Mental health first aiders learn a five-step action plan that guides them through the process of reaching out and offering appropriate support. Martin said the first aid training is available for people in any setting that might put them in contact with people with mental illness churches, shelters, etc. Martin said the state is putting the money that used to go to mental health facilities into community programs such as local group homes, which prepares the clients to return to their local communities. Success for those people, he said, often depends on the support structure they have in the community. The training included ideas that could benefit anyone trying to assist someone with mental illness during a difficult time: Show that you are concerned; try to get the person out of a hectic situation; remain calm; speak reassuringly, but firmly; dont try to touch the patient; get medical help if needed; speak slowing and clearly; use short sentences; be patient; acknowledge the terror the person may be feeling; and remind them even though their fear is real, its not life-threatening. When someone has a panic attack, Martin gave as an example, they can feel like they are dying or having a heart attack. Officers had opportunity to ask questions about conditions and the way they should try to respond. As police officers, some trainees said, they may have other duties during an encounter with a mental patient such as public safety. Martin said a police officers role might be different than that of a civilian, because of the types of encounters that might lead someone to call for their help. Still, Martin said he felt the training will help officers recognize mental illness and could give some guidance for officers in dealing with people. Martin had officers team up for an exercise: one officer took a rolled tube of paper and spoke into the ear of a colleague while another officer tried to carry on a conversation with them. He said for some people, mental illness is the distraction of another voice in their heads, telling them, for example, not to trust anyone. The course will assist our officers to identify when someone in our community may be struggling with a mental health or substance use problem and to connect them with the appropriate support and resources, when necessary, Hallman said.

Marijuana growers in California would be required to train employees about worker safety and sexual harassment under legislation headed for a hearing Tuesday.
Sponsored by the UFCW Western States Council, the cannabis workers protection bill would require marijuana business owners of all kinds to put at least one employee per year through a 30-hour training from the state Division of Occupational Safety and Health.
Assemblyman Jim Cooper, D-Elk Grove, introduced the bill in response to an investigation by Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting that uncovered widespread sexual harassment and abuse of female workers in Californias marijuana-growing industry. Reveal found that migrant workers, known as trimmigrants, are particularly vulnerable to abuse.
The bill is currently before the Assembly Committee on Business and Professions.
The state course, available online, covers workers rights and standards in the workplace, including on violence, sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and health and safety hazards. Its an education that many in the industry say growers and workers desperately need.
Not much has changed. The standards are crappy. We need to have some basic OSHA (occupational safety and health) training, like in any business, said Michelle Hood, director of the Redwood Womens Foundation, which hosts workshops on worker safety. Having someone trained to train other people is quality control. Youve got to have it.
Since Californians voted to legalize recreational marijuana, Hood said she hasnt seen many changes in workplace safety and standards. Growers generally lack awareness of their requirements under Fire Safety Training the law, the result of years spent operating underground.
You havent been able to go down to the Small Business Administration to find out: How am I supposed to educate my employees? How am I supposed to keep them safe? said Brandie Wilson, a human rights commissioner in Humboldt County.
