Mental Health First Aid
July 9 @ 9:30 am - July 10 @ 4:30 pm$400.00
Mental Health First Aid is the help provided to a person who is developing a mental health problem, or who is in a mental health crisis. Like physical first aid, mental health first aid is given until the person receives professional help or until the crisis resolves.
It is structured around similar principles to physical first aid so that those assisting have an understanding of:
- Signs and symptoms of mental illnesses and crises
- How to assist and support someone experiencing mental health problems
- Strategies for assisting in a mental health crisis
- How to refer and provide information on professional support
