Mental Health First Aid Training

This course will teach you how to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illness and substance abuse disorders. The course is 8 hours and will be split into two 4-hour sessions.


About:
• People who enroll in local Mental Health First Aid courses learn a 5-step action plan to help loved ones, colleagues, neighbors and others cope with mental health or substance use problems.

• This training covers common signs and symptoms of mental illness and substance use, how to interact with a person in crisis, how to connect that person with help, and how to administer naloxone in the event of an opioid overdose. Trainees also learn risk factors and warning signs of mental illness and addiction and about available treatments. Upon completion, participants better understanding the impact mental illnesses and addictions have on a person, their family, and communities.

• Mental Health First Aid has strong evidence backing it and is a national best practice training course. Three quantitative and one qualitative studies have shown that the program: 1) improves people’s mental health, 2) increases understanding of mental health issues and treatments, 3) connects more people with care and 4) reduces stigma.
