Sometimes, first aid isn’t a bandage, CPR, or calling 9-1-1.
Sometimes, first aid is YOU!

You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, coworker, neighbor, or member of the community — in an emotional or mental 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. Anyone can take the 8-hour Mental Health First Aid course — first responders, students, teachers, leaders of faith communities, human resources professionals, and caring citizens.

Learn how to help at this all day, no cost training led by Deschutes County Behavioral Health Therapists.

Limited to 30 participants.
