We all know CPR and what goes in our first aid kits for physical injuries. But what about first aid for mental health? If you know at least 3 people, chances are you need a Mental Health First Aid kit.

Register now for one or more of the following trainings to get certified and fill up your kit with the skills you need to identify, understand & respond to someone experiencing a mental health, substance use, or suicide challenge or crisis.

Adult Mental Health First Aid:

  • Teaches risk factors and warning signs for adults.
  • Provides strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations.
  • Gives resources for where to turn for help.
  • Focuses on recovery and resiliency – the belief that individuals experiencing these challenges can and do get better, and use their strengths to stay well.

Questions? Contact Marcia at or (530) 440-6033.
