Mental Health First Aid Course - Tri-County MHFA Collaborative now offering!
Sometimes, first aid isn’t a bandage,
or the Heimlich,
or calling 911.
Sometimes, first aid is YOU!
Someone you know could be experiencing
a mental illness or crisis. You can help them.
You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member,
coworker, neighbor, or member of the community — in an emotional
or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Mental Health
First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to people
with the signs and symptoms of a mental illness or in a crisis,
and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social,
or self help care. Anyone can take the 8-hour Mental Health
First Aid course — first responders, students, teachers, leaders
of faith communities, human resources professionals, and
caring citizens. Many courses are being offered in the tri-county area.
This is a FREE training and includes a participant manual.
