Man with arms crossed

Mental health challenges – such as depression, anxiety, psychosis and substance use – are shockingly common in the United States.

In fact, more than one in five American adults will have a mental health problem in any given year.
The National Council for Behavioral Health certifies individuals throughout the nation, including Region 1, to provide Mental Health First Aid courses to prepare their communities with the knowledge and skills to help individuals who are developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis.

Identified on SAMHSA’s National Registry of Evidence-Based Pro-grams and Practices, the training helps the public better identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses.

Anyone, anywhere can be the one to make a difference in the life of someone with a mental health or substance abuse challenge – if they know what to do and what to say. Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance abuse disorders in your community.

This class is available to the open public and will be presented by Ryan Larson and Nichole Peralta.
