Mental Health First Aid Training – August 27th, 2021
Mental Health First Aid takes the fear and hesitation out of starting conversations about mental health and substance use problems by improving understanding and providing an action plan that teaches people to safely and responsibly identify and address a potential mental illness or substance use disorder.
When more people are equipped with the tools they need to start a conversation, more people can get the help they need. Mental Health First Aiders can even save lives.
Mental Health First Aid Training is an 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.
*Admission is free and lunch is included.
