Oct 5: ICS Mental Health First Aid Training

Mental Health First Aid teaches people how to give 'first aid' to individuals experiencing a mental health crisis and/or who are in the early stages of a mental health disorder. This training provides information on identifying the signs and symptoms of mental health disorders/crises in adults, as well as risk factors and protective factors for this population.The 5-step Mental Health First Aid action plan is explored and applied to mental health disorders and crisis situations through the use of discussions, case examples and videos. This action plan includes approach skills, effective communication of concern and support, and connecting families to professional and community resources.
