You know about calling 911, CPR,
and the Heimlich Maneuver.

But do you know what to do in
a mental health emergency? 
Did you know?
  • Mental disorders are more common than heart disease and cancer combined.
  • 1 in 4 Americans has a diagnosable mental illness.
  • You are more likely to encounter a person experiencing a mental health crisis than someone having a heart attack.

Mental Health First Aid Training is designed to increase knowledge, reduce stigma, and offer appropriate supports to individuals experiencing a mental health crisis. You will learn:
  • Warning signs and risk factors for depression, anxiety, trauma, psychosis, suicide, substance abuse, etc.
  • 5-step action plan to help an individual in crisis connect to resources and professional care.
Who Should Attend?
  • Friends and family of individuals with mental illness or addiction.
  • Community leaders such as police officers, school personnel, college faculty, human resource personnel, clergy, parent groups, healthcare workers, professional associations.
  • Anyone working with the public or wanting to make a positive difference in our community.

As a service to the community, the Children’s Service Fund in partnership with BHR and NAMI is offering this training FREE of charge to individuals who live in St. Louis County, work in St. Louis County, and/or serve/interact with St. Louis County children and youth on a regular basis.

This is offered as either one or two day training; certificates of attendance will be provided at the completion of course. CEU’s are also available for $10. Seating is limited.  Specialized training for groups is available upon request and availability.
