Microsoft Office 2019 – Coming to a system near you

Starting Monday, September 16, you may opt to install the latest version of the Microsoft Office desktop applications via Software Center a little early. This upgrade process is planned to be delivered to all systems automatically starting Friday, September 20th during the after-hours update and maintenance period. This has been scheduled during this period to minimize any disruption to normal operation.

One thing to note regarding the upgrade. Shortcuts. Any shortcuts on your desktop to Office applications will be removed and will not be replaced. Shortcuts located in your Taskbar will not be removed. These will need to be manually removed and have the updated application shortcuts added.

Should you have any questions, comments or concerns, please let TSS know.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training registration

Are you interested in being able to assist someone experiencing a mental health-related crisis or non-crisis situation and where to turn for help?

Before you can know how to help, you need to know when to help.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognized program designed to build mental health literacy within our communities — or a basic understanding of what different mental health illnesses and addictions are, how they can affect a person’s daily life, and what helps individuals experiencing these challenges get well.

You will learn about:
· Depression and mood disorders
· Anxiety disorders
· Trauma
· Psychosis
· Substance Use disorders
· How to help someone who may be experiencing thoughts of suicide or harm

Mental Health First Aid teaches about recovery and resiliency — the belief that individuals experiencing these challenges can and do get better, and use their strengths to stay well.

Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack — even with no clinical training — becoming a Mental Health First Aider will train you to provide initial help to people experiencing mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety disorders, psychosis and substance use disorders as well as how to help someone who may be experiencing thoughts of harm or suicide.

This 9-hour training is FREE to Shoreline Community College employees and students and will be offered in two (2) – 4.5-hour sessions:

Friday, October 4 AND Friday, October 11 from 11:00 am – 3:30 pm (Bring your lunch – and an afternoon snack will be provided).

You MUST attend BOTH training sessions to receive a MHFA handbook and become a certified Mental Health First Aider.

Please email Sheryl Copeland at scopeland@shoreline.edu to register and/or find out more information. Once registered, details as far as room location, etc. will be shared.
