Just as CPR teaches us how to help an individual suffering from certain medical emergencies, Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) instructs us how to identify, understand and respond to those who are experiencing a behavioral health crisis. The MHFA program is an interactive training that helps individuals recognize risk factors and warning signs for a range of behavioral health problems, and teaches a five-step action plan to provide basic, yet appropriate interventions for individuals experiencing a mental health crisis.
All classes are available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on these dates:
- April 6 (Conf Rm A)
- June 11 (Conf Rm A)
- Sept. 4 (Conf Rm B & C)
- Oct. 29 (Conf Rm A)
- Risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems, including suicide
- Information on depression, anxiety, trauma, psychosis, and addiction disorders
- A 5-step action plan to help someone experiencing a mental health crisis
- Resources for help — Crisis Hot Lines, professional care, peer specialists, and self-help resources
THE CLASS IS FREE, BUT REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED
