Mental Health First Aid

Did you know, on average, there are 123 suicides a day? Or that nearly 1 in 5 U.S. adults lives with a mental illness? Mental Health First Aid teaches how to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders over the course of an 8-hour training. It will give you the skills to reach out and provide initial support to someone who may be at risk for developing a mental health or substance use problem and to connect them to the appropriate care. This course is designed for anyone in the community, especially community leaders, faith leaders, first responders, hospital staff, police officers, employers, teachers, or any caring individual who wants to be ready to make a difference in their community. First Aid saves lives. Mental Health First Aid saves lives as well.
