Mental Health First Aid (February 19)

Pullman City Hall
325 SE Paradise Street, Pullman, WA

Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis. In the Mental Health First Aid course, you learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situatoins, and where to turn for help. 

What it covers: 

  • Defusing crises
  • Promoting mental health literacy
  • Combating stigma of mental illness
  • Enabling early intervention through recognition of signs and symptoms
  • Connecting people to care
