The goal of this course is to increase mental health literacy, expand knowledge of how to help someone in crisis, connect individuals to needed services, and reduce stigma. To do this, Dr. Kevin Dixon and Stephanie Patrick of the Alcohol, Drug, and Mental Health Board will present an overview of mental illness and substance use disorders, and introduce participants to risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems, build understanding of their impact, and provide an overview of common treatments. Those who take the 12-hour course to certify as Mental Health First Aiders learn a 5-step action plan encompassing the skills, resources and knowledge to help an individual in crisis connect with appropriate professional, peer, social, and self-help care.
