Traditional first aid training teaches participants to perform CPR or create a tourniquet to save lives. Mental Health First Aid provides the skills to help during a mental health crisis. The Rappahannock Area Community Services Board provides both youth and adult curriculums of this suicide-prevention training.
Through role-playing and simulations, participants gain skills to offer assistance in a mental health crisis. Participants will learn the common risk factors and warning signs of mental illnesses such as anxiety, depression, substance use disorder, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. The course will enable participants to offer community resources to people in crisis.
The 8-hour course is available for individuals and organizations. The $25 registration fee includes a workbook, refreshments and lunch on the first day of training. Checks should be made payable to RACSB with “Mental Health First Aid” in the memo line.
