Come join us in our first Mental Health First Aid Certification training led by Brooke Briggance and Karina De Leon Montes from the Cypress Resilience Project.
According to the CDC, one in five Americans experience a mental illness crisis each year. Yet, mental health stigma makes it difficult to talk about it and most people working with the public do not receive adequate training. We’re changing this!
Mental Health First Aid Certification covers identifying signs and symptoms of an emerging mental health issue, skills to provide support to individuals experiencing a mental health challenge, and action steps to manage a mental health emergency or crisis.
After the completion of 5 training hours by Zoom and 2 self-directed learning hours, you will receive the Mental Health First Aid professional certification conferred by the National Council for Mental Wellbeing. The certificate lasts for three years and can be renewed online. You can add it to your resume and apply the skills in all aspects of life.
This training is excellent for mediators, coaches, teachers, and service providers who work directly with the public. You will receive the Zoom link upon completing your registration and payment. All materials you will need will be provided.
