MHFA: Mental Health First Aid

SPONSORED EVENT

Mental Health First Aid is an eight (8) hour course that teaches you how to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders.

Mental Health First Aid USA is a live training program — like regular First Aid or CPR — designed to give ordinary people the skills to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. Mental Health First Aid uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to recognize and respond to the warning signs of specific illnesses.

Mental Health First Aid teaches participants a five-step action plan, ALGEE, to support someone developing signs and symptoms of a mental illness or in an emotional crisis:

  • Assess for risk of suicide or harm 
  • Listen non-judgmentally 
  • Give reassurance and information 
  • Encourage appropriate professional help 
  • Encourage self-help and other support strategies

SPONSORED BY TEAM RUBICON

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is a two-day interactive workshop in suicide first aid. ASIST teaches participants to recognize when someone may have thoughts of suicide and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety. Although ASIST is widely used by healthcare providers, participants don't need any formal training to attend the workshop—anyone 16 or older can learn and use the ASIST model.
