ADULT MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID TRAINING

Adult Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour training course ideal for anyone who interfaces with the public. It was developed because more than 1 in 4 adults will have a mental health challenge such as depression, anxiety, impulse control or misuse of drugs or alcohol in any given year. The National Council on Community Behavioral Healthcare has begun working with community advocates to implement MHFA to equip the public with the needed skills to help people who are experiencing a mental health crisis. The data demonstrates that this program helps those trained to better identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness, which improves the outcome of the event for everyone. The training open to anyone interested in learning about mental illness and how to respond to someone in a mental health crisis. No previous mental health training needed.

All attendees receive a certificate of attendance for completing the 8-hour course.
