Peninsula Behavioral Health will be offering Mental Health First Aid Training on June 6th through the 7th.
Mental Health First Aid is a twelve hour training certification course which teaches participants a five step action plan to assess a situation, select and implement interventions, provide referrals, and secure appropriate care for the individual. The certification program introduces participants to risk factors and warnings signs of mental health problems, builds understanding of their impact and overviews common treatments. Evaluations in randomized trials and a quantitative study have proved this CPR like program effective in improving trainee’s knowledge of mental disorders, reducing stigma, and increasing the amount of help provided to others.
