Details

Mental Health First Aid is an eight-hour course that gives non-behavioral health specialists the skills to help a person who is in emotional crisis. The evidence behind the program demonstrates that it builds mental health literacy, helping the public identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illness and emotional stress.

American Heart Association Heartsaver First Aid, CPR and AED is a video-based, instructor-led course that teaches students critical skills needed to respond to and manage an emergency until emergency medical services arrives. Skills covered in this course include first aid; choking relief in adults, children, and infants; and what to do for sudden cardiac arrest in adults, children, and infants.

Upon completion of the 2-day event, participants will be certified as Mental Health First Aiders for three years and American Heart Association Heartsaver First Aid, CPR and AED for two years.
