Join an upcoming class to become a mental health first aider!
Much like CPR teaches us to respond to a physical health crisis, Mental Health First Aid teaches us to respond to a mental health crisis.
Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness and substance use disorders. This training gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem and connect them to the appropriate care.
Extension Educators are now trained to provide this virtual training all across the state of Wisconsin! Trainings include a 2-hour self-paced online class and a 6-hour instructor-led Zoom course. This course is provided FREE of charge through the WiROSE grant.
To sign up for upcoming trainings, please see the below flyers or go to the WiROSE website – https://wirose.wisc.edu/mental-health-first-aid/
