First Aid of the Mental Health Variety

Studies have shown that mental health first aid training makes people feel more comfortable managing a crisis situation and helps build mental health literacy–helping the public identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness. We will take a wide-angle lens look at recognizing potential risk factors and warning signs for a range of mental health problems, including: depression, anxiety/trauma, psychosis and psychotic disorders, substance use disorders and self-injury. We will learn a 5-step action plan to help individuals in crisis connect with appropriate professional help & how to question someone who you feel might be suicidal.
