Mental Health First Aid for Public Safety
The Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Board of Franklin County (ADAMH) and Mental Health America of Franklin County (MHAFC) are offering a Mental Health First Aid for Public Safety course. Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour course that teaches a 5-step action plan encompassing the skills, resources, and knowledge to help an individual in crisis connect with appropriate professional, peer, and self-help care. The course teaches the unique risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems, builds understanding of the importance of early intervention, and, most importantly, teaches individuals how to help someone in crisis or experiencing a mental health challenge. This Mental Health First Aid course is designed for public safety audiences which include police, first responders, corrections officers, security personnel and other public safety staff.
