Adult Mental Health First Aid Training-May 30, 2015(Lunch Included)
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an in-person 8-hour training course that teaches community members how to help persons developing a mental illness or experiencing a mental health crisis. MHFA training is proven to make people feel more comfortable managing a crisis situation and also builds mental health literacy  helping the public identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness in an appropriate and timely manner.

One in four Americans will experience a mental health problem each year  yet most will suffer alone and go without treatment. In the next decade the National Council for Behavioral Health expects Mental Health First Aid to become as common as CPR training.

You will learn:
-The signs of addictions and mental illnesses
-A 5-step action plan to assess a situation and help
-The impact of mental and substance use disorders
-Local resources and where to turn for help

Here's why it's so important:

-Professional help is not always on hand when a mental health crisis arises
-Many people do not know how to recognize mental health and substance abuse problems, how to properly handle them when they are recognized, or what treatments are available
-The lack of adequate training can lead to inaction when assistance could be provided, creating the potential for the situation to worsen
-People with mental health problems may not realize they need help or that help is available to them
