You are more likely to encounter someone -- friend, family member, student, neighbor, or member of the community -- in an emotional or mental health crisis than someone having a heart attack. Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to young people showing signs of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self-help care.
This course is intended for teachers, support staff, paraeducators, coaches, and other school employees who have frequent contact with youth. Participants will have time to action plan to strategize a procedure for intervening with identified students.
