Mental Health First Aid teaches participants how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness and substance use disorders. Just as CPR helps those without medical training to assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid prepares participants to help someone developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. Developed by the National Council on Behavioral Health, Mental Health First Aid has become a well known movement in the United States—more than 1 million people are certified Mental Health First Aiders, and that number is growing every day.
This free to NECC students training is made possible for our students by The Office of Student Life, Counseling and Psychological Services, The Center for Professional Development, and our Certified Mental Health First Aid trainer, Kathleen Bartolini.
