Last week I had the opportunity to learn Mental Health First Aid from North Country Community Mental Health.
Mental Health First Aid is help for a person experiencing a mental health challenge.
Mental Health First Aid aims to:
- Preserve life when a person may be in danger to self or others
- Prevent the problem from becoming more serious
- Promote recovery and resilience
- Provide comfort
- Help to identify appropriate resources and guide the person toward them
I can’t recommend this training enough.
What if we all learned mental health first aid like we do CPR?
That would be a step toward We Fight’s vision of a northern Michigan where everyone plays a role in protecting our kids’ mental health.
A step toward hope.
P.S. North Country Community Mental Health is hosting another Mental Health First Aid training on Wednesday, May 18th-Thursday, May 19th. The trainings are 1:00-4:00 PM on both days. Register HERE.
