FREE COMMUNITY TRAINING

An Introduction

Most of us would know how to help if we saw someone having a heart attack—we’d start CPR, or call 9-1-1. But few of us would know how to respond if we saw someone having a panic attack or some other type of mental distress.

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.
