Please Join O&GA for the first Mental Health First Aid 101 Introductory Workshop

This free 2-hour workshop is an overview course.  The 8-hour certification will take place October 25, 2019.

Someone you know could be experiencing a mental illness or crisis.  Can you help them??

You are more likely to encounter someone – friend, family member, co-worker, neighbor, or member of the community – in an emotional or mental health crisis than someone having a heart attack.  Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to people with the signs and symptoms of a mental illness or in a crisis and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self-help care.

MHFA is an evidence-based program that is being used internationally. 

  • Identify mental health crises and concerns
  • Provide help, comfort, and support to promote and enhance recovery
  • Preserve life when a person may be a danger to self or others
  • Identify signs & symptoms of common mental health disorders,
  • Build awareness of community resources for mental health
  • Understand stigma associated with mental illness and its effects
