Mental Health First Aid
Someone you know could be experiencing a mental illness or crisis. You can help them.
You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, coworker, neighbor, or member of the community — in an emotional or mental 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. Anyone can take the 8-hour Mental Health First Aid course — first responders, students, teachers, leaders of faith communities, human resources professionals, and caring citizens.
Sometimes, the best first aid is you.
Take the course, save a life, strengthen your community.
Two Sessions Available:
January 31st and February 7th, 2018
(Must attend both days to be certified.)
