Mental Health First Aid Course SCONE
May 17 @ 9:00 am - May 18 @ 3:00 pm
What is Mental Health First Aid (MHFA)?
This 12-hour course teaches adults how to provide mental health first aid to friends, family and co-workers. Mental health first aid is the help provided to a person who is developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or in a mental health crisis.
The first aid is given until the appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves. Participants will learn the signs and symptoms of mental health problems, where and how to get help and what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective.
