Mental Health First Aid-USA for military members, veterans and their families
August 24, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Sometimes, first aid isn’t a bandage, or CPR or the Heimlich, or calling 911. Sometimes, first aid is YOU! Mental Health First Aid is the help offered to a person developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. The first aid is given until appropriate treatment and support are received or until the crisis resolves. The Military and Veteran population and their families are resilient by nature. However, sometimes Service Members, Veterans, and their families experience difficulty coping with service, deployment, reintegration, and medical conditions. As a community, we can help them.
Take the course, save a life, strengthen your community, and help our heroes.
