This event has already occurred!

Just as CPR helps, even those without clinical training, assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid prepares participants to interact with a person experiencing  a mental health or an addiction crisis. In this 8-hour adult certification training, Mental Health First Aiders learn a 5-step action plan that guides them through the process of reaching out and offering appropriate support. This certificate training is for adults,18 and over, and anyone in the community, as well as health care professionals.
