Greg Allen, Certified Mental Health First Aid Trainer/Referral Liasion
An estimated 1 in 4 Americans have a diagnosible mental illness.
Hi, my name is Greg Allen and I am a Certified Mental Health First Aid & Crisis Prevention Intervention Trainer.
I am an Armed Services Veteran and Bronze Star receipient who graduated from Morehouse College with military honors.
As an Infantry Platoon Leader, I became thoroughly familiar with the mental, emotional and traumatic situations service members and their families encounter during times of war and peace.
As a mental health professional with over 10 years experience, I know that behavioral/mental health problems require strategic solutions, specific techniques and evidenced based interventions.
I have witnessed how the stigma surrounding mental illness often prevents people from seeking help or even acknowledging that they need help and how untreated mental problems interfere with a person's ability to go to school, maintain employment and have satisfying personal relationship. I am fortunate to be employed at an organization whose motto: BUILDING HOPE AND CHANGING LIVES, sums up my personal commitment towards helping people overcome or learn to cope with their individual struggle.
