Description Sometimes First Aid isn’t a bandage, CPR, administering the Heimlich or calling 9-1-1. Sometimes First Aid is YOU. Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour, evidence based training course presented by certified Mental Health First Aid USA instructors. It teaches how to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. Someone you know may be experiencing a mental health crisis and YOU can help. Believe it or not, you are more likely to encounter someone – family, friend, neighbor, co-working – in a mental health crisis than having a heart attack. Participants will learn about: • Risk factors and warning signs of mental health concerns • Information on depression, anxiety, trauma, psychosis and substance abuse • A 5-step action plan to help someone who is developing a mental health concern or crisis • Available evidence-based professional, peer and self-help resources
