Mental Health First Aid Training

Arizona State Library will be offering  Mental Health First Aid training to library staff. It will be taught by certified professional instructors from Pinal-Gila Council for Senior Citizens. Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis. In the Mental Health First Aid course, you learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help.
