Mental Health First Aid
Someone you know could be experiencing a mental illness or crisis. You can help them.
Become a certified Mental Health First Aider!
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.
The adult Mental Health First Aid course is appropriate for anyone who wants to learn how to help an individual who may be experiencing a mental health crisis or concern.
SOMETIMES, THE BEST FIRST AID IS YOU. Take the course, save a life, strengthen your community.
This is an 8-hour class and runs from 8:30 am to 5 pm.
This class is funded by the New York State Legislature.
