The trainings are being sponsored by the Prince George's County Local Behavioral Health Authority and offered at no cost to participants. All class materials will be provided.
Mental Health First Aid® is a skills-based national certification course that teaches participants to recognize and respond to a mental health or substance use challenge or crisis and to connect the person in need to appropriate care. Mental health consumers, their family members, and community behavioral healthcare providers are encouraged to participate. Space is limited.
One Mental Health First Aid® training targets adults assisting other adults. The other Mental Health First Aid® training targets adults assisting youth.
Both Mental Health First Aid® classes will be taught via a virtual platform. And, both classes will require two hours of self-directed on-line learning followed by a facilitated conversation that will take place over Zoom Video Conferencing.
