Mental Health First Aid - REGISTRATION CLOSED

Presented by Kathy Floyd, LCSW Director & Kim DiMeola, LCSW

The stigma surrounding mental illness often prevents people from seeking help or even acknowledging that they need help. Mental Health First Aid will equip case managers to help persons with mental illness connect to care. Mental Health First Aid has been rigorously evaluated and is proven to reduce stigma connected to mental illnesses. This program can reduce the damaging effects of mental and emotional disorders such as job loss, school dropouts, relationship issues, and drug and alcohol problems. You will learn about:

  1. The prevalence of mental illnesses in the U.S. and their emotional and economic cost.
  2. The potential warning signs and risk factors for depression, anxiety disorders, trauma, psychotic disorders, eating disorders, and substance use disorders.
  3. A 5-step action plan to help an individual in crisis connect to professional care.
  4. What are the resources available to help someone with a mental health problem?
