Training course: Mental Health First Aid

Saturday, October 8, 2022

Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack, 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.

The course is virtual. Link to the session will be sent to registrants. 

Thursday, October 27, 2022 - 9am to 4pm 

Training Covers:
  • Common signs and symptoms of mental illness
  • Common signs and symptoms of substance abuse
  • How to interact with a person in crisis
  • How to connect the person with help
Please note there is a 2 hour self paced pre-work section that must be completed before the training.

Limited space. Registration closes October 13, 2022.

Mental Health First Aid training is funded by the King County Mental Illness and Drug Dependency (MIDD) Plan Initiative PRI-07 – Mental Health First Aid. These sessions are open to the public, though space may be limited. 
Course and course materials are included (a $170 value per participant). This project is supported, in whole or in part, by federal award number SLFRPO152, awarded to King County by the US Department of the treasury.
For more information and to register: for the ADULT October 27 class
