ADULT MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID

is an 8-hour training ideal for anyone who interfaces with the public. It was developed because more than 1 in 4 adults will have a mental health challenge such as depression, anxiety, impulse control or misuse of drugs or alcohol in any given year. The National Council on Community Behavioral Healthcare has begun working with community advocates to implement MHFA to equip the public with the needed skills to help people who are experiencing a mental health crisis. The data demonstrates that this program helps those trained to better identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness, which improves the outcome of the event for everyone. The training open to anyone interested in learning about mental illness and how to respond to someone in a mental health crisis. No previous mental health training needed.

YOUTH MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID

is an 8-hour training for anyone dealing with adolescents (12-18), and especially valuable for parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, coaches, peers, neighbors, health workers, and other caring citizens who might interface with an adolescent experiencing a mental health or addictions crisis. The course introduces common mental health challenges for youth, reviews typical adolescent development, and teaches a 5-step action plan for how to help young people in both crisis and non-crisis situations. This training is open anyone who regularly interacts with adolescents, and to the general community.
