Chilton Medical Center recently awarded NewBridge Services two grants totaling nearly $20,000 to offer community trainings free to participants.

NewBridge will run two, eight-hour Mental Health First Aid training sessions for fire and emergency medical services first responders in Pequannock Township. The evidence-based program provides first responders knowledge, resources and skills in treating people with mental health conditions and substance use disorders. MHFA training addresses ways first responders can de-escalate incidents and respond to mental health-related situations appropriately, without compromising safety.

Tame the Pain

The second grant allows NewBridge to offer four-week sessions of Tame the Pain and Bodies in Motion to older adults in Butler, Pequannock, Wayne, and other communities in Chilton Medical Center’s service area. Tame the Pain teaches adults ages 60 and up about the risks of prescription opioids and alternative pain management options. Bodies in Motion is a gentle move-to-music program that makes physical activity fun and social. Tame the Pain and Bodies in Motion classes will be held at senior housing facilities, local libraries, and senior centers.

“We are grateful to Chilton Medical Center for recognizing the value of our community training programs,” said Beth Jacobson, director of Community Response and Education at NewBridge. “These grants allow us to expand efforts of providing valuable information and experiences that make our communities stronger.”
