Description

What is Mental Health First Aid?

Mental Health First Aid is the initial help given to a person showing symptoms of mental illness or in a mental health crisis (severe depression, psychosis, panic attack, suicidal thoughts and behaviors, etc ...) until appropriate professional or other help, including peer and family support, can be engaged.

Mental Health First Aid Teaches You:

- Potential warning signs and risk factors for addictions and mental illness (depression, anxiety, trauma, substance use, and disorders in which psychosis may occur)

- Impact of mental and substance use disorder and common mental health challenges for adults and youth, and typical adolescent development

- 5-step action plan (ALGEE) to assess a situation and provide help

- Local community resources and where to turn for help

These 8-hour courses prepare members of the public to provide Mental Health First Aid to those in need.

Because of the interactive nature of the course, it is limited to no more than 30 participants. If we have less than ten, we would need to cancel.


Cost includes a lunch (and participant manual, and 3 year MHFA certification
