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 alive 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.

To register for the course, please visit https://portal.mentalhealthfirstaid.org/firstaiders/signin?returnUrl=firstaiders and enter your Course ID 00119810. Once your registration is complete, you will receive a confirmation notification on the portal.

QPR: Question - Persuade - Refer

SPONSORED EVENT: 22KILL

This is a monthly training brought to 22Kill and community by trained instructor Christopher Payne (MSW, LMSW).

QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. Each year thousands of Americans, like you, are saying "Yes" to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor.

This course focuses on how to reduce access to the methods people use to kill themselves. It covers how to: (1) identify people who could benefit from lethal means counseling, (2) ask about their access to lethal methods, and (3) work with them—and their families—to reduce access.
