“Mental Health First Aid” training available

Just as CPR training enables you to help an individual having a heart attack – even if you have not had clinical training – Mental Health First Aid provides guidance to assist someone experiencing a mental health-related crisis. In the Mental Health First Aid course, you learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns; strategies for helping someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations; and where to turn for help.

Attendees who attend the full day will receive credit for 8 training hours and will learn about: depression and mood disorders; anxiety disorders; trauma; psychosis; and substance use disorders.

Please register for the training by contacting Susan Peterson at 893-0207 or emailing speterson@adultandchild.org.
