Sometimes, first aid isn’t CPR or calling 911. Sometimes, the best first aid is you!

You are more likely to encounter someone—older adult, family member, colleague, neighbor, or friend—in an emotional or mental health crisis than someone having a heart attack. Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to people with the signs and symptoms of a mental illness or in a crisis.

Take the course, save a life, strengthen your community.

This training will inform participants of the risk factors and warning signs of a variety of mental health challenges common among older adults. Ideal participants are adults who regularly interact with and care for older people and have had limited clinical training in mental health disorders.

FREE

Space is limited to 25. Please inform the organizer Adam Jones at adamj@compassoregon.org if you need to cancel your registration or can no longer attend the training.

A certificate will be awarded at the end of the training and a light breakfast and lunch will be served.
