Sometime first aid isn’t a bandage, or CPR, or calling 911. Sometimes, first aid is YOU.
You are more likely to encounter someone in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Learn how to help a friend, family member, coworker or neighbor in need.
Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour training course which teaches participants an action plan to assess a situation, select, and implement interventions and secure appropriate care for the individual. The program introduces participants to risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems, builds understanding of their impact, and overviews common treatments.
