Mental Health First Aid helps people identify, understand and respond to individuals experiencing signs of mental illness and substance abuse disorder. The training is recommended for people working with the public (nurses, teachers, social worker, law enforcement, etc.) as well as consumers, families or anyone who wants to learn more about mental health care. Mental Health First Aid introduces participants to the unique risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems, building understanding of the importance of early intervention, and most important teaches individuals how to help those in crisis or experiencing mental health or substance abuse challenges. The training can be tailored specifically to those working with adults, those who work with you and also those working with veterans and their families.
