Mental Health First Aid

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.

There are three dates available for this eight-hour course:
