Like CPR, Mental Health First Aid prepares participants to interact with a person in crisis and connect the person with help. The training offers concrete tools and answers key questions like, “What do I do?” and, “Where can someone find help?”

This course is appropriate for anyone who wants to learn how to help a person who may be experiencing a mental health related crisis or problem. Topics covered include anxiety, depression, psychosis, and addictions. Course participants come from a variety of backgrounds and use the skills learned from this training in their daily lives, including within their own families, workplaces, and communities.

Certified Mental Health First Aid instructors provide a list of community and national resources for mental health and addictions treatment and support. All trainees receive a program manual to complement the course material.

CEUs will be available at this training. Provider approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing, Provider Number CEP 2365 for 6.5 contact hours. Please email fwills@cceb.org for further details.
