Chris Newbrough

Audrain County Health Department (ACHD) Grant and Marketing Coordinator Chris Newbrough recently completed Non-Violent Crisis Intervention Instructor Program through the Crisis Prevention Institute.
The Non-Violent Crisis Intervention program teaches staff how to respond to a situation in which someone is acting in a threatening manner and teaches employees how to de-escalate a situation before it reaches a point where violence is used. Newbrough is now nationally certified to teach other employees at the ACHD de-escalation techniques and how to protect themselves and others during potential threatening situations. His enrollment in the class was supported through a grant from the Miriam Arnold Edmonston Foundation.
