Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour training course designed to give members of the public key skills to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis.  Just as CPR training helps a layperson without medical training assist an individual experiencing a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid training helps a layperson assist someone experiencing a mental health crisis.

This workshop will be presented in ASL by individuals who are Deaf. For interpreters who are faced with mental health crisis interpreting assignments, this workshop provides pre-assignment preparation and also language models to help you prepare for the assignment.
