About this Event

Learn about mental health and how to manage crisis situations in this FREE interactive 1-day course.

Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. Classes usually consist of 30 people or less and are offered in a respectful community setting in English or Spanish.

Topics Covered:

  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.

This event is sponsored by the Lake County Health Department and Community Health Center in partnership with St Francis de Sales Catholic Church
