Have you heard about Mental Health First Aid? It’s designed to quickly help folks with a behavioral health need. It’s a lot like CPR or other forms of first aid for physical health conditions in that anyone can learn and apply the concepts soon after going through the short certification training. Mental Health First Aid prepares folks to respond and act in a helpful manner when they’re concerned about someone’s mental health. This can be someone they know or even a stranger experiencing an emotional crisis.
To learn more and become certified in Mental Health First Aid, you’re invited to join one of the several 12-hour training courses taking place throughout our State. Our new website provides details about all the classes available statewide (new classes are added continuously). If you live in Phoenix, you can also attend the June 13 training here at ADHS.
