Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. This 8-hour training gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem and help connect them to the appropriate care.
The course will teach you how to apply the ALGEE action plan:
Assess for risk of suicide or harm
Give reassurance and information
Encourage appropriate professional help
Encourage self-help and other support strategies
Join us this camp meeting on Tuesday, July 2 and Wednesday, July 3 from 8:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. The course will be taught by our relationship ministries director Dr. David Defoe, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Certified Mental Health First Aid Instructor. We have spread out the training over two days to make the 8 hour classroom time more manageable.
