Mental Health First Aid is an interactive course that gives people the skills to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. The evidence behind the program demonstrates that it builds mental health literacy and helps the public identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness. Participants are introduced to risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems, gain an understanding of their impact and explore common interventions and treatments. The next session is Sept. 15.
Cost is $25 per participant. Limited scholarships are available. This course takes place from 9 a.m.-3 p.m., at the Johnson County Sunset Office Building, 11811 S. Sunset Dr., Olathe.
