Mental Health First Aid

Date and Time:
Wednesday, May 2, 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Lunch will be provided.

Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis. In the Mental Health First Aid course, participants learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help.

Topics covered:

  • Depression and mood disorders
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Trauma
  • Psychosis
  • Substance Use disorders

Learning objectives:
Identify risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems.
Demonstrate a 5-step action plan to help someone developing a mental health problem or in crisis.
Identify appropriate professional, peer, or self-help resources to refer a person with a mental health problem.

See the Mental Health First Aid site for more information on learning goals.
