Coming Soon: Mental Health First Aid Certification!
Mental Health First Aid is a public education program that introduces participants to risk factors and warning signs of mental illnesses, builds understanding of their impact, and overviews common supports. This 8-hour course uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to offer initial help in a mental health crisis and connect persons to the appropriate professional, peer, social, and self-help care. The program also teaches the common risk factors and warning signs of specific types of illnesses, like anxiety, depression, substance use, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, and schizophrenia.
Mental Health First Aid is included on the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP).
We are still in the process of creating a training schedule and collecting information from those interested in being certified. If you are interested please complete the Google form at: http://goo.gl/forms/Xv6DNWF3xQ You may also email the instructor, James Dinh, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
