This free, eight-hour course prepares you to interact with an adult in crisis and connect them with help. We’ll use role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to offer initial help in a mental health crisis and connect adults to the appropriate professional, peer, social and self-help care. Mental Health First Aid training offers concrete tools for people who are not mental health professionals to be first responders. The class answers key questions like, “What do I do?” and, “Where can someone find help?” The training covers common risk factors and warning signs of specific illnesses like anxiety, depression, substance use, bipolar disorder, eating disorders and schizophrenia.
