Mental Health First Aid is an 8 hour training course that gives people the tools to identify when someone might be struggling with a mental health or substance use problem and to connect them with the appropriate support and resources when necessary.

 

1 in 5 Americans has a mental illness, but many are reluctant to seek help or might not know where to turn for care. Unlike physical conditions, symptoms of mental health and substance use problems can be difficult to detect. For friends and family members, it can be hard to know when and how to step in . As a result, those in need of mental health services often do not get them until it is too late.

Just as CPR helps even those without clinical training assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid prepares participants to interact with a person experiencing a mental health crisis. Mental Health First Aiders learn a 5-step action plan that guides them through the process of reaching out and offering appropriate support.

Equipping participants with the tools needed to start the dialogue with people in a mental health crisis, helps to take the fear and hesitation out of entering into conversations about mental health and substance use problems.

This program will be completed in two, four hour sessions on consecutive Sundays. With the support of WRPC Stephen Ministry, Liz Danielian, a certified trainer, will be the instructor.
