2017. Maryland. MONTGOMERY COUNTY AFRICAN AFFAIRS ADVISORY GROUP MENTAL HEALTH AWAERENESS CAMPAIGN

MONTGOMERY COUNTY AFRICAN AFFAIRS ADVISORY GROUP
MENTAL HEALTH AWAERENESS CAMPAIGN


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

                         NO LONGER A TABOO!
Mental Health Awareness is one of the top priorities on the agenda for the Montgomery County African Affairs Advisory Group (AAAG). Although Mental Health is a National focus, the African diaspora communities still experiences lack of awareness due to stigma, cultural barriers and beliefs. Moreover, Diaspora communities experience an overall lack of exposure and limited access to information on mental health as well as county resources that are readily available to them. Our goal is to align with the Healthy People 2020 goal of improving mental health through prevention and increased access to appropriate quality mental health services.
1 Veterans Pl,
Silver Spring MD 20910
Date: February 9th, 2017
Time: 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
According to Healthy People 2020, Mental health is a state of successful performance of mental function, resulting in productive activities, fulfilling relationships with other people, and the ability to adapt to change and to cope with challenges. Mental health is essential to personal well-being, family and interpersonal relationships, and the ability to contribute to community or society.
Joined by members of the African Diaspora Communities, Faith-based organizations, Montgomery College Mental Health program, Mental Health Association of Greater Washington, A Place of Hope, Kariah Health Clinic, experts in the field and many others, the Montgomery County African Affairs Advisory Group officially breaks the silence on mental health.
As we launch the Mental Health Campaign, we aim to create mental health awareness by breaking the taboo of silence at the grassroots-level and beyond to ensure that existing resources meet the needs of diverse communities.
Montgomery County African Affairs Advisory Group
The Montgomery County African Affairs Advisory Group (AAAG) serves as liaison between the African communities and the Montgomery County government. The purpose of the African Affairs Advisory Group is to ensure that the County Executive is well informed of and able to act effectively, to respond to the needs and concerns of African immigrants living and/or working in Montgomery County.

Watch, Listen & Learn: The Hospital Preparedness Program. Do we need volunteer Fire\EMS stations in our urban and rural communities.

The push for volunteer fire\ems stations in OUR RURAL and URBAN communities.  For our future leaders and our communities.

Can the hospital and healthcare system handle the full load during a mass casualty exercise, or real-world event.  When we should begin to reduce the load on the system for more serious injuries, and services.  We have to begin to help ourselves in our communities.

CPR, basic first-aid & buddy care, and volunteer Fire\EMS stations are a start.

Charles D. Sharp.  CEO Black Emergency Managers Association.

2017. Unpaid Ten-Week Internships for Fall 2017 Diplomatic Security, U.S. Department of State

Caveat:  Internships are entry-level and unpaid, but with most Federal hiring likely frozen/backlogged, there may still be ways for entry-level people to access Federal experience and get a start on a Security Clearance.  

There is no guarantee that this particular program will survive as the E.O. is yet to be interpreted much less implemented, but it is not hard for people to apply by March 1. 


******

Unpaid Ten-Week Internships for Fall 2017
Diplomatic Security, U.S. Department of State

Students participating in the Unpaid Internship Program work full-time for 10 consecutive weeks.  The goal of the program is to provide students with opportunities that are both educationally and professionally substantive. 
  
Interns hired under the 2017 Fall Unpaid Internship Program enter on duty between September and December 2017. 

For students interested in the program, the 2017 Fall vacancy announcement is posted online through 1 March.  Interested students may apply via the following link through USAJOBS at https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/462236800.
