Mental Health First Aid



This course teaches about recovery and resiliency – the belief that individuals experiencing these challenges can and do get better, and use their strengths to stay well. Under SB 460, school districts are required to provide training in early mental health intervention and suicide prevention for teachers, counselors, principals, and other appropriate staff.  

Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis. In the Mental Health First Aid course, you learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help.

Topics covered: depression and mood disorders, anxiety disorders, trauma, psychosis, and substance use disorders.
