ADULT MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID TRAINING AT QUINSIGAMOND COMMUNITY COLLEGE & Gateway to College New England Program Summit
WHEN: March 14 and March 15, 2018
TIME: 9-1pm (each day)
More than one in five American adults will have a mental health problem in any given year, but many are reluctant to seek help or might not know where to turn for care. Just as CPR helps even those without medical training assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid prepares participants to:
Interact with a person experiencing a mental health crisis
Identify risk factors and warning signs of mental health and substance use problems
Participants will walk away with:
Information on depression, anxiety, trauma, psychosis and substance use
A 5-step action plan to help someone developing a mental health problem
Training is free, but space is limited.
