CRJ 139 - Mental Health First Aid

1 credits
This certification course presents an overview of mental illness and substance use disorders in the U.S. and introduces participants to risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems, builds understanding of their impact, and overviews common treatments. Those who take the full course to certify as Mental Health First Aiders learn a 5-step action plan encompassing the skills, resources and knowledge to help an individual in crisis connect with appropriate professional, peer, social, and self-help care. This course is NOT for those who suffer from mental health issues themselves. We, as first aiders are to give them assistance once we recognize the disorder or crisis, (although it does cover self-help, it is guided by the first responder.)
