Mental Health First Aid Registration Open

March 25 @ 8:00 am April 12 @ 5:00 pm

The purpose of MHFA training is to build an empowered community united around mental health care by effectively educating organizations to better address mental health issues.  In MHFA classes, people get a better understanding of how to recognize and offer initial aid to someone who may be experiencing a mental health or substance use crisis (or are in an escalating panic situation). Attendees are shown how to ask if a person is distressed, and how to intervene on their behalf. MHFA courses also spell out a clear, five-step action plan to help individuals in crisis connect with the right professionals and peers. The course also covers any community resources available, as access to care is a crucial piece of the puzzle.  This training is being offered via zoom on April 22nd from 9am to 4pm with breaks built in throughout the day.
