YOU WILL LEARN TO SUPPORT YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY, AND NEIGHBORS:

  • Mental Health Fist Aid (MHFA) is skills-based training that teaches people how to identify, understand and respond to signs and symptoms of a mental health or substance use challenge.
  • Similar to physical First Aid and CPR, MHFA helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance use crisis until professional assistance is obtained or the crisis is resolved.
  • Mental Health First Aiders learn a 5-step Action Plan to recognize warning signs of a mental health or substance use challenge, provide help in crisis and non-crisis situations and understand where to turn for additional assistance.
  • » The 5-step Action Plan (ALGEE) is: assess for risk of suicide or harm, listen nonjudgmentally, give reassurance and information, encourage appropriate professional help, and encourage self-help and other support strategies.

THE COURSE WILL REQUIRE: Mental Health First Aiders will complete a 2-hour, self-paced online course, and then participate in a 6.5 to 7-hour virtual Instructor-led session via Zoom.

AFTER THE COURSE, YOU’LL BE ABLE TO:

  • Recognize common signs and symptoms of mental health challenges.
  • Recognize common signs and symptoms of substance use challenges.
  • Understand how to interact with a person in crisis.
  • Know how to connect a person with help.
  • Use self-care tools and techniques.
