Mental Health First Aid
Mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, impulse control, and misuse of alcohol and other drugs are shockingly common in the United States. In fact, one in four people struggle with a mental health challenge in a given year in the United States (per NIMH, SAMHSA*, CDC, etc.). These are people in our community who are our customers, colleagues, patrons, neighbors, friends, and family; people you want to help when they are struggling, but may not know how.
At the conclusion of this program, you will be able to:
· review the signs and symptoms of the most common mental health disorders;
· recognize how they might look if escalating toward a crisis;
· safely and compassionately encourage them to access various types of support;
