About the event

Identify. Understand. Respond.

Mental Health First Aid is a skills-based training course that teaches participants about mental health and substance-use issues.

Mental Health First Aiders are…

Teachers, first responders and veterans. They’re neighbors, parents and friends. They’re people in recovery, and those supporting a loved one They’re First Ladies and Mayors. Mental Health First Aiders are anyone who wants to make their community healthier, happier and safer for all.

When you take a course, you learn how to apply the Mental Health First Aid action plan in a variety of situations, including when someone is experiencing:

Panic attacksSuicidal thoughts or behaviorsNonsuicidal self-injuryAcute psychosis (e.g., hallucinations or delusions)Overdose or withdrawal from alcohol or drug useReactionto a traumatic eventThe opportunity to practice — through role plays, scenarios, and activities — makes it easier to apply these skills in a real-life situation.
