O&GA International Visits Vopak for an Educational Tour

The O&GA Leadership team had a beautiful full day of education and fun! The weather was perfect as the team gained valuable new industry knowledge while taking a tour of the Vopak facility in Deerpark after a delicious lunch at The Monument Inn. The team then enjoyed a fun night of bowling and teambuilding at Pinstripes in River Oaks. A HUGE thank you goes out to Leila Sanchez and the Vopak company for arranging the lunch and the tour and for allowing us to see how their operations work. Another HUGE thank you goes to Carl Guillory of Citistreets transportation for the beautiful shuttle ride and to Alice Smith and Mariah Glover at Pinstripes for helping us end the day with a great time! At O&GA our goal is to educate about the energy industry, provide career development, personal development and global networking opportunities and create valuable partnerships for our members and supporters.

This free 2-hour workshop is open to everyone and is an overview course.  The 8-hour certification will take place October 25, 2019.

Someone you know could be experiencing a mental illness or crisis.  Can you help them??

You are more likely to encounter someone – friend, family member, co-worker, neighbor, or member of the community – in an emotional or mental health crisis than someone having a heart attack.  Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to people with the signs and symptoms of a mental illness or in a crisis and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self-help care.

MHFA is an evidence-based program that is being used internationally. 

  • Identify mental health crises and concerns
  • Provide help, comfort, and support to promote and enhance recovery
  • Preserve life when a person may be a danger to self or others
  • Identify signs & symptoms of common mental health disorders,
  • Build awareness of community resources for mental health
  • Understand stigma associated with mental illness and its effects

ALGEE, the Mental Health First Aid Action Plan

Assess for risk of suicide or harm

Listen non-judgmentally

Give reassurance and information

Encourage appropriate professional help

Encourage self-help and other support strategies

LENGTH: 2 hours.

These workshops are underwritten by Kaiser Permanente, the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, The Meadows Foundation, and the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado. Mental Health America of Greater Houston provides the outreach and certified trainers as we help rebuild hope and the well-being of people throughout the region.


Light Snacks and Drinks will be available.
