Presented by Region Ten Community Services Board and the Virginia Health Care Foundation. Mental Health First Aid is similar to First Aid and CPR. Mental Health First Aid helps individuals to support those experiencing mental health problems and aids in getting people professional help and support. It is an interactive 8-hour course that teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to people with the signs and symptoms of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self- help care.
This training is appropriate for the general public and most professionals, including: primary care providers, employers and administrators, school personnel and educators, nonprofit program managers and coordinators, state policymakers, and volunteers.
