Adult Mental Health First Aid® Training @ Zoom Meeting

Trainers: Robin Holland

April 13, 2021 from 9:00AM – 4:00 PM

This training is for non-clinical staff.

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. MHFA Woman Image

Sometimes, the best first aid is you.

Take the course, save a life, strengthen your community.
