A young person YOU know may be experiencing a mental health or substance use challenge – learn an ACTION PLAN to help them find the right resources.
Anyone, anywhere can be the one to make a difference in the life of someone who is struggling – if WE know what to do and what to say. The Mental Health First Aid training teaches you how.
You will learn how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders in your community, while also discussing how to be nonjudgmental, compassionate and a great listener.
