Mental Health First Aid USA was introduced in the United States in 2008 and continues to grow in relevance and popularity. The intent of Mental Health First Aid USA is to provide the public with skills to help individuals who are developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. Participants will learn how to assess harm to self and others resulting from mental illness, listen while refraining from judgment, manage an acute mental health crisis, discuss local mental health resources and recommend evidence-based self-help strategies for people living with mental illness. Youth Mental Health First Aid is applicable for those interacting predominantly with adolescents between the ages of 12 and 18.
Discounts available for non-profits and students.
