Community Care: Mental Health First Aid

44News This Morning Anchor Shelby Coates is Going Inside the Community with details about Youth and Adult Mental Health First Aid Training. Similar to traditional First Aid and CPR, Mental Health First Aid is help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or experiencing a crisis until professional treatment is obtained or the crisis resolves.

Trainees go through an 8-hour training program that teaches them a five-step action plan to (1) assess a situation, (2) select and implement appropriate interventions, and (3) secure appropriate care for an individual experiencing a mental health or substance use problem.
