Similar in concept to traditional First Aid and CPR, Mental Health First Aid is assistance provided to a person developing a mental health problem or experiencing a crisis. The Mental Health First Aid Course teaches individuals how to help relieve a person in distress until professional treatment is obtained or the crisis is resolved.
Mental Health First Aid is a 12-hour training certification course. Everyone is invited take the class-–including first responders, students, teachers, leaders of faith communities, human resources professionals, law enforcement personnel, as well as caring community members.
We are more likely to encounter someone (friend, family member, coworker, neighbor, or member of the community) in an emotional crisis than someone having a heart attack. Sometimes, the best first aid is YOU.
Take the course, save a life, strengthen your community.
