Event description

Description

Mental Health First Aid USA is a public education program that introduces participants to risk factors and warning signs of mental illnesses, builds understanding of their impact, and overviews common supports. This 8-hour course uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to offer initial help in a mental health crisis and connect persons to the appropriate professional, peer, social and self-help care. The program also teaches the common risk factors and warning signs of specific types of illnesses, like anxiety, depression, substance use, bipolar disorder, eating disorders and schizphrenia. For more information or questions please contact, Michele.Griffin@parks.nyc.gov. This is a two day workshop. Participants MUST complete both sessions for certification.
