Mental Health First Aid Training

Mental Health First Aid Course  - Tri-County MHFA Collaborative now offering! Sometimes, first aid isn’t a bandage, or CPR,                                       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. For more information please call 248-652-5269. September 13, 2014     Crittenton Hospital Medical Center  Auditorium                  8am-5:30pm   Please bring your own lunch.  REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
