Sometimes, first aid isn’t a bandage, or CPR, or the Heimlich, or calling 911.

Sometimes, first aid is YOU!

Someone you know could be experiencing a mental health challenge or crisis. You can help them.

You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, student, 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 young people showing signs of a mental illness or in a crisis and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self help care.

Anyone, ages 18 and over, can take the 8-­hour Mental Health First Aid ® or Youth Mental Health First Aid course and receive a 3 year certification from the National Council for Behavioral Health.

Sometimes, the best first aid is you. Take the course, save a life, and strengthen your community.

  1. Brenda,

    I am very much interested in attending this First Aid Training, but I will need to receive approval to attend. I will try to register at that time to see if you have available space.

    Thanks, Clare
