Mental Health First Aid Training
April 5 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm$25
Mental Health First Aid is a public education program that introduces participants to risk factors and warning signs of mental illnesses, builds understanding of their impact, and overviews common supports. This 8-hour course uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to offer initial help in a mental health crisis and connect persons to the appropriate professional, peer, social, and self-help care. The program also teaches the common risk factors and warning signs of specific types of illnesses, like anxiety, depression, substance use, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, and schizophrenia.
Mental Health First Aid is included on the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP).
AppFaith Health has partnered with VAYA Health and NAMI High Country to offer this training. Class size is limited, and registration is required. Cost of class is $25.00. There is the opportunity for a scholarship provided by NAMI High Country.
