Why Mental Health First Aid?
Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness and substance use disorders. This training gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem and help connect them to the appropriate care.
The 7.5 – hour Adult Mental Health First Aid Course focuses on recognizing the patters of thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and appearance that show there might be a mental health challenge. Learners are taught an action plan that they apply to non-crisis and crisis situations.
