Event Details

Mental Health First Aid 

   

Background: 
Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack - even if you have no clinical training - Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health related crisis. Mental Health First Aid is a national program to teach the skills to respond to the signs of mental illness and substance use.
 
Learning Objectives:
1.  Signs of addictions and mental illnesses
2.  5 Step action plan to assess a situation and help 
4.  Local resources and where to turn for assistance
 
Instructors:  Aaron Rasch and Sara Eckland 
Aaron Rasch and Sara Eckland work at Independent Living Resources in La Crosse assisting individuals in mental health recovery.  Utilizing their education and personal experience of recovery, they seek to enhance the lives of those they support from a perspective of mutuality and respect.  Sara manages a mental health drop-in center and Aaron coordinates technical assistance to eleven peer-based mental health organizations around the state.  They offer training for Peer Support Specialist certification, Mental Health First Aid, and other recovery oriented topics.  Sara obtained her MSW from UW-Madison and Aaron is completing his MA in Servant Leadership at Viterbo University.
