Young Mental Health First Aid Training – FREE

May 18, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

Join the movement in Santa Barbara County to strengthen our community. Because we can all be more aware and more informed.

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.

Learn the importance of early intervention. Learn the risk factors and warning signs for mental health and substance use concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and how to connect youth to appropriate care.

8 hour course is taught by certified instructors.

Participants receive a 3 year certification upon completion.

Course provides an opportunity to practice — through role plays, scenarios, and activities — makes it easier to apply these skills in a real-life situation.

An overview of local mental health resources, support groups, and other help are provided.

A resource manual is provided and packed with information on all topics covered in the course

Mental Health First Aiders learn a single “ALGEE” 5-step action plan for how to help young people in both crisis and non-crisis situations.
