Mental Health First Aid Workshops

Mental Health First Aid is the help given to someone developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis.

Purpose and content
This 8-hour Mental Health First Aid course is designed to

  • Enhance mental health literacy
  • Decrease stigma of mental health problems
  • Encourage people with problems to get early help

Participants will learn the warning signs and symptoms of the most common mental health problems, including

  • Depression
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Schizophrenia
  • Self-injury
  • Substance use disorders

The course

  • Builds understanding of the impact of these problems and
  • Provides overviews of common treatment.
  • Presents a five-step "first aid" plan
The class is interactive—and fun. Call to schedule training for your group or to register for one of our regularly scheduled community trainings.
