Event description
Saturday, August 15th (part 1) & Sunday August 16th, 2020 (part 2)
10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. Seattle, WA
Mental Health First Aid
Due to the length of MHFA training, this class has been broken into two, 4-hour sessions. The first taking place on Saturday in the third week of August from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm, and the second half the following day on Sunday, also from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm.
Most of us would know how to help if we saw someone having a heart attack—we’d start CPR, or at the very least, call 9-1-1. But too few of us would know how to respond if we saw someone having a panic attack or if we were concerned that a friend or co-worker might be showing signs of alcoholism.
Mental Health First Aid takes the fear and hesitation out of starting conversations about mental health and substance use problems by improving understanding and providing an action plan that teaches people to safely and responsibly identify and address a potential mental illness or substance use disorder.
Topics Covered
Depression and mood disorders
Anxiety disorders
Substance Use disorders
Mental Health First Aid teaches about recovery and resiliency - the belief that individuals experiencing these challenges can and do get better, and use their strengths to stay well.
