Sometimes, first aid isn’t a bandage, or CPR, or calling 911.
Sometimes, first aid is YOU!
You are more likely to encounter someone in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. The Mental Health First Aid class teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to people with the signs and symptoms of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate care. Mental Health First Aid is for anyone— parents, neighbors, students, first responders, teachers, leaders of faith communities, human resources professionals, and caring citizens. Youth Mental Health First Aid is for Adults who work with Youth from about ages 12 years to 18 years old.
