Hope + Mental Health First Aid

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.
