|Mental Health First Aid Training (FREE)||
Just as CPR helps people assist other individuals having a heart attack—even if you have no medical training—Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health related crisis.
In the Mental Health First Aid course, you learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help.
Before you can know how to help, you need to know when to help. We call this mental health literacy. It provides you with a basic understanding of what different mental illnesses and addictions are, how they can affect a person’s daily life, and what helps individuals experiencing these challenges get well.
You will learn about:
Mental Health First Aid teaches about recovery and resiliency – the belief that individuals experiencing these challenges can and do get better, and use their strengths to stay well.
