Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour course that teaches you how to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. This event will be geared for faith communities to reduce stigma and promote mental health awareness in their congregations. . Participants will learn: Risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems. Information on depression, anxiety, trauma, psychosis and addiction disorders. A 5-step action plan to help someone developing a mental health problem or in crisis. Where to turn for help – professional, peer and self-help resources. The hope is, by training faith communities, people will receive the tools that could potentially save lives in case of an emergency situation in the home, at work and at places of worship.
