Mental Health First Aid Training – May 5th, 2023
Sometimes, first aid isn’t a bandage, or CPR, or calling 911. Sometimes, first aid is YOU.
Mental Health First Aid Training is a 8-hour course funded by a Randolph County 708 Board Grant that is open to the public. It gives people the tools to identify when someone may be struggling with a mental health or substance misuse problem. It connects them with appropriate support and resources. MHFA includes training and families, healthcare families, healthcare providers and individuals with mental illnesses. Become a certified Mental Health First Aider alongside more than 550,000 others.
