Location: JP Jones Community Development Center

Description:
Most people have heard of First Aid and CPR to address physical distress, but what happens when someone is exhibiting signs of emotional or mental distress?

In this training, Mental Health First Aid trainees are taught how to practice and respond appropriately to mental health problems in a variety of situations, such as helping someone through a panic attack, engaging with someone who may be suicidal, or assisting an individual who has overdosed. Just as CPR training helps a layperson with no clinical training assist an individual following a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid training helps a layperson assist someone experiencing a mental health
crisis until appropriate professional help arrives.

This training offers eight (8) C.E. Credits for Nursing through the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). Please see registration page for more information. 
 
Cost: $85
