MHFA Classes for EMS
One of Beyond the Save's goals is to train EMS providers in Mental Health First Aid. These classes will be open to any EMS personnel across the UP and will be free of charge.
Mental Health First Aid for EMS teaches you how to identify, understand
and respond to signs of mental illnesses and Substance Use Disorders. This 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. It focuses on the unique experiences and needs of firefighters and EMS personnel and is a valuable resource that can make a difference in their lives, their coworkers’ and families’ lives, and the communities they serve.
