About the Event
Have you encountered someone experiencing a mental health crisis?
What did you do? Did you feel confused, uncomfortable or ill-prepared? With mental health first aid training, you would have had the tools to help.
What is Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Training?
MHFA is like regular first aid but rather than treating a physical injury, you treat a person who may be experiencing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. When you can recognize the signs of mental problems or mental crisis, you can administer mental health first aid until appropriate professional help is received or until the crisis is resolved.
