Sometimes, First Aid isn’t a bandage, or CPR, or the Heimlich, or calling 9-1-1.
Sometimes, First Aid is YOU!
Someone you know could be experiencing a mental illness or crisis. You can help them. You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, coworker, neighbor, or member of the community — in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Mental Health First Aid 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 professional, peer, social, or self-help care.
 
Anyone can take the 8-hour Mental Health First Aid course — first responders, students, teachers, leaders of faith communities, human resources professionals, and caring citizens. Training and materials provided by Journey Mental Health on Tuesday, March 11 and 18, 8:30 – 12:30 pm.  $80 fee.  Certificate for 8 course hours available upon completion.
