About this Event

Learn about mental health and how to manage crisis situations.

Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis.

The Lake County Health Department through a SAMHSA grant is providing the books and materials free of charge to ensure your success in completing the course.

Topics Covered include:

  1. Depression and mood disorders
  2. Anxiety disorders
  3. Trauma
  4. Psychosis
  5. Substance Use disorders

When you take a course, you learn how to apply the Mental Health First Aid action plan in a variety of situations, including when someone is experiencing:

  • Panic attacks
  • Suicidal thoughts or behaviors
  • Non-suicidal self-injury
  • Acute psychosis (e.g., hallucinations or delusions)
  • Overdose or withdrawal from alcohol or drug use
  • Reaction to a traumatic event

You learn by getting involved with the material and relating what you learn to real-life applications. Discussion topics, scenarios, and other activities keep you engaged in the course and give you an opportunity to practice helping skills.

Participants must register and attend both sessions: 10/12 and 10/19 in order to receive certificate.

This event is sponsored by the Lake County Health Department and Community Health Center in partnership with Youth & Family Counseling and Cook Memorial Public Library District.

Lunch provided by Youth & Family Counseling
