Virtual Adult Mental Health First Aid

February 26 @ 8:30 am - February 27 @ 12:30 pm

Free

Adult Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone 18 years and over who is experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis.  In this course, you learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help.

Topics Covered:

  • Depression and mood disorders
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Trauma
  • Psychosis
  • Substance use disorders

When you take a course, you learn how to apply the Mental Health First Aid action plan in a variety of situations, including when someone is experiencing:

  • Panic attacks
  • Suicidal thoughts or behaviors
  • Nonsuicidal self-injury
  • Acute psychosis (e.g., hallucinations or delusions)
  • Overdose or withdrawal from alcohol or drug use
  • Reaction to a traumatic event

The opportunity to practice – through role plays, scenarios, and activities – makes it easier to apply these skills in a real-life situation.

Adult Mental Health First Aid teaches about recovery and resiliency – the belief that individuals experiencing these challenges can and do get better and use their strengths to stay well. There is no cost and each participant will receive an electronic training manual.

This class will be held virtually on Friday, February 26th and Saturday, February 27th from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. BOTH DAYS. In order to complete the course, you must attend both sessions.
