Mental Health First Aid - REGISTER NOW

Presented by Kathy Eggert & Kim DiMeola, APT Foundation

Mental Health First Aid has been rigorously evaluated and is proven to reduce stigma connected to mental illnesses. This program can reduce the damaging effects of mental and emotional disorders such as job loss, school dropouts, relationship issues, and drug and alcohol problems. The stigma surrounding mental illness often prevents people from seeking help or even acknowledging that they need help. And if they do want help, they don’t know where to turn. Mental Health First Aid equips the public to help persons with mental illness connect to care.

You will learn:

  • The prevalence of mental illnesses in the U.S. and their emotional and economic cost.
  • The potential warning signs and risk factors for depression, anxiety disorders, trauma, psychotic disorders, eating disorders, and substance use disorders.
  • A 5-step action plan to help an individual in crisis connect to professional care.
  • Resources available to help someone with a mental health problem.

Mental Health First Aid is a highly interactive, 8-hour program taught over two days.

Lunch will NOT be provided.
