Mental Health First Aid is a public education training that rounds out CPR and First Aid, teaching how to help someone in emotional crisis.  Most of us know how to offer initial help to someone who's choking or has broken their leg.  However, do we know how to help someone who's having a panic attack, developing depression, or thinking of suicide?

Mental Health First Aid educates on just that - how to recognize when someone's developing a mental health issue, and how to help.  The training includes:

  • interactive simulations

  • small group activities

  • learning a 5-step action plan

  • signs and symptoms

  • assessing for suicide risk

  • how to talk with someone who is suicidal

  • keeping the person SAFE

  • how to connect with professional help

  • science based effective treatments

  • self help strategies supported by research

 

Learn this and more in Mental Health First Aid, which has become a worldwide movement-- shifting the way we think about mental health.
