Adult Mental Health First Aid - Winston-Salem, North Carolina - May 20 and 21 -- 8:00am to 12:30 pm
Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack even if you have no clinical training Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health related crisis. In the Mental Health First Aid course, you learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help.
Before you can know how to help, you need to know when to help. We call this mental health literacy or a basic understanding of what different mental illnesses and addictions are, how they can affect a person's daily life, and what helps individuals experiencing these challenges get well.
You learn about:
Depression and mood disorders
Substance Use disorders
Mental Health First Aid teaches about recovery and resiliency the belief that individuals experiencing these challenges can and do get better, and use their strengths to stay well.
This training will be two (2) half-day trainings on May 20 and 21 from 8:00 am to 12:30 pm each day. Call 336-768-3880 for questions, details, additional information
