Like CPR, Mental Health First Aid prepares participants to interact with a person in crisis and connect the person with help. The training offers concrete tools and answers key questions like, “What do I do?” and, “Where can someone find help?”
This course is appropriate for anyone who wants to learn how to help a person who may be experiencing a mental health related crisis or problem. Topics covered include anxiety, depression, psychosis, and addictions. Course participants come from a variety of backgrounds and use the skills learned from this training in their daily lives, including within their own families, workplaces, and communities.
