Mental Health First Aid
October 11, 2019     .     8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Sometimes first aid isn't a bandage, or CPR or calling 911. Sometimes, first aid is YOU.

Mental Health First Aid is Coming To St. Michael’s

Friday, October 11th, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.

 

Mental Health First Aid is a public education program that introduces participants to risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems, builds understanding of their impact and overviews appropriate supports. This 8-hour course uses role- playing and simulations to demonstrate how to offer initial help in a mental health crisis and connect people to the appropriate professional, peer, social and self-help care. The program also teaches common risk factors and warning signs of specific illnesses like anxiety, depression, substance use, bipolar disorder, eating disorders and schizophrenia.

 

$20 covers the cost of your manual.  Space is limited.
