Just as CPR training equips you to help someone having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid equips you to help someone experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis. This online class teaches you how to recognize signs of mental health or substance use challenges in adults ages 18 and older, how to offer and provide initial help, and how to guide a person toward appropriate care if necessary. Participants must register two weeks in advance and complete two hours of self-paced training at least three days prior to the course date. Visit lakeregional.com/events to register or call Community Outreach at 573-348-8222 for more information.
