Mental Health First Aid
Start Date: 3/9/2018Start Time: 8:00 AM
End Date: 3/9/2018End Time: 5:00 PM

Event Description:
MHFA is a 8-hour training course designed to teach individuals (trainers) methods for assisting someone who may be in the early stages of developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. The course provides useful information on how to assist individuals who have a history of mental disorders, longer-term mental health problems, or help identify those developing serious mental health difficulties. Trainers who complete the 8-hour training program will learn a five-step action plan to: 1) assess a situation, 2) select and implement appropriate interventions, and 3) secure appropriate care for an individual experiencing a mental health problem. Trainers also learn risk factors and warning signs of mental illness and about available mental health treatments. Upon completion, trainers better understand the impact mental illnesses have on a person, their family, and communities. The National Council, which oversees Mental Health First Aid nationally and credentials trainers, will ensure the U.S. program continues to have a strong empirically-backing by ongoing evaluation in this country.
