Take a Mental Health First Aid Course
Mental Health First Aid for Adults teaches people how to recognize signs of mental health or substance use challenges in adults ages 18 and older, how to offer and provide initial help, and how to guide a person toward appropriate care if necessary. Topics covered include anxiety, depression, psychosis, and addictions.
Youth Mental Health First Aid is designed to teach parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, school staff, peers, neighbors, health and human services workers, and other caring citizens how to help an adolescent (age 12-18) who is experiencing a mental health or addictions challenge or is in crisis. Youth Mental Health First Aid is primarily designed for adults who regularly interact with young people.
Public Safety Classes
Mental Health First Aid for Public Safety & Military helps First Responders and their families better understand how to respond to mental health-related situations. Peer instructors focus on the unique experiences and needs of a First Responder and can make a difference in the lives of the attendee, their coworkers, their families, and the communities they serve.
