Mental Health Training

Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour training course that teaches you how to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis.  The training helps you identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and addictions. This training is open to community members from all backgrounds to learn how to support an individual until appropriate mental health professional help arrives.

Mental Health First Aid provides an overview of mental illness and substance use disorders in the U.S. and introduces you to risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems, builds understanding of their impact, and overviews common treatments.

Skills Obtained at Mental Health First Aid

By the end of the workshop, participants will be better able to:

  • The potential risk factors and warning signs for a range of mental health needs, including: depression, anxiety/trauma, psychosis, eating disorders, substance use disorders, and self-injury.
  • An understanding of the prevalence of various mental health disorders in the U.S. and the need for reduced stigma in their communities
  • A 5-step action plan encompassing the skills, resources and knowledge to assess the situation, to select and implement appropriate interventions, and to help the individual in crisis connect with appropriate professional care
  • The professional, peer, social, and self-help resources available to help someone with a mental health need
