Mental Health First Aid Training
April 20 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm
An evidence-based program that has been adopted by over 20 countries, Mental Health First Aid teaches adults how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. Utilizing a five-step action plan, participants will learn to assess for risk of suicide or harm, listen without judgment, give reassurance and information, encourage appropriate professional help, and encourage self-help and other support strategies. Participants also receive detailed information regarding local providers, community services and national resources available for support and recovery.
