Mental Health First Aid
You are more likely to encounter someone in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. in fact, mental health issues are one of the major reason students leave Illinois State University. Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. During this two-day training, you will learn the ALGEE five-step action plan to offer initial help to people in a crisis and connect them with the appropriate care. Participants who complete the two-day training will receive a book and a certificate of completion. A stipend is available for eligible participants. Registration is required.
