Mental Health First Aid Training for Adults

  • StarkMHAR Inclusion Room 121 Cleveland Avenue Southwest Canton, OH, 44702 United States (map)

Trainer: Jeannie Cool and Lilly Davenport

Wednesday, May 16 and Thursday, May 17, 2018 from 8:30-12:30 PM

This training is for non-clinical staff.

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

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.
