WOODSTOCK, ON – The Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps (RCSCC) Woodstock is partnering with United Way Oxford’s Youth United and Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) Oxford to provide Mental Health First Aid training to 15 of it’s cadets and 5 adults. This training is made possible through funding from United Way Oxford and the Woodstock Navy League.
Public Relations Petty Officer Ronnie Hannon suggested this training to Sub Lieutenant Doug Hannon, after losing a friend and fellow cadet to death by suicide. PO2 Hannon, 15, hopes this training informs participants on how to recognize the signs of someone who is struggling, and learn how to support their friends and fellow cadets.
This training will be free to the participants, thanks to the funding from Youth United and the Woodstock Navy League, which is in alignment with the values of the RCSCC Woodstock.
