Mental Health First Aid Training

You may know CPR or the Heimlich maneuver. You can call 911. But, would you know how to administer first aid in a mental health crisis? Could you recognize suicidal thoughts or behaviors?

This 8-hour course is taught by certified “Mental Health First Aid USA” instructors.

You will learn to recognize the signs and symptoms of anxiety, depression, substance use disorders and psychosis. You will also learn what to do until appropriate professional and other help can begin.

Learn this for yourself. Bring it to your community. This evidence-based program will change lives.

There are two different trainings. One is for individuals who work with youth aged 12-18, school teachers, youth workers, Pastors, etc. The other is for individuals who mostly interact with adults. Choose one or both depending on your needs.
