Adult Mental Health First Aid
Many know how to provide basic first aid for physical wounds. But what about first aid for mental health problems? Nevada has the highest rates of senior suicide in the nation; with training you could make a difference to a friend or family member in crisis. Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. This training gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem and help connect them to the appropriate care. The training is provided in eight one-hour sessions plus naloxone training. Each person who completes all nine hours of the training will receive a certificate of completion.
