Mental Health First Aid
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an enterprise-level approach to mental health awareness and training aims to improve early recognition and encourage help-seeking, enhancing utilization of timely, appropriate support, and perhaps limiting the impact mental health issues can have on the work environment. This program will support elected officials and county staff with their own mental health and well-being, as well as create a framework to destigmatize mental health and substance use challenges.
The Revenue Recovery Program allows any eligible debt owed to local government agencies to be repaid by withholding state personal income tax refunds, lottery proceeds and other state-level revenue events. This proprietary software managed by NACo FSC shares a vision of healthy, safe and vibrant counties across America through offering an affordable, simple and efficient method for debt collection.
