Mental Health First Aid

Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance use-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 with things like:

  • Depression and Mood Disorders
  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Trauma
  • Psychosis
  • Substance Use Disorders

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.

Registration is FREE, and lunch and snacks will be provided. CEU’s are available for Social Workers.

Space is limited!  Registration deadline is September 27. To register, email ASAP to  [email protected].
