Course Number

3621

CLE

Approved for 1.0 hour of General CLE Credit and 1.0 hour of Mental Illness Awareness CLE Credit.

Description

Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis. MHFA is most relevant in situations where it becomes apparent that people in your social or professional network are developing serious mental health problems and it may also provide useful information on how to assist a person who has a history of a mental disorder or longer term-mental health problems.

Objectives:

  • Introduce Mental Health First Aid, the training and the role of a Mental Health First Aider
  • Give an overview of the prevalence and impact of mental health problems in the United States
  • Introduce the Mental Health First Aid Action Plan (called “ALGEE”) and how it fits within the array of interventions available to address mental health problems
  • Give an overview of the signs, symptoms and possible risk factors and warning signs of depression and anxiety
