Mental Health First Aid
Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour course that teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. The training gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial help and support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem or experiencing a crisis.
Topics covered include:
- Depression and mood disorders
- Anxiety disorders
- Substance Use disorders
Thanks to a generous donation provided by Providence Health Care, this course, which is regularly valued at $100 per person, will be offered to the community at no cost through the end of 2019.
There will be a 30 minute lunch break, but lunch is not provided. Participants are free to use the refrigerator and microwave onsite.
