Mental Health First Aid Training

Learn the Symptoms of a Mental Health Problem and How to Respond

             Mental Health First Aid is an evidence-based training that teaches the signs and symptoms of mental health disorders, and provides individuals with tools to respond to a mental health emergency, until professional help arrives. MHFA provides action steps to take to help someone experiencing early signs of a mental health disorder.   

The 12-hour course will be offered January 20 and 27, from 9am to 4pm, at the offices of Talbot County Emergency Management, 605 Port St., Easton.  Training is provided by state-certified instructors, and class sizes are limited to a maximum of 25 participants.  Thanks to a grant from the Mid-Shore Mental Health Systems, the training is being offered for only $30 per person, which covers the cost of materials.

Participants will learn about the major mental health disorders, including anxiety, post-traumatic stress, eating disorders, substance abuse, depression, psychosis and suicide prevention.

Continuing Education Units are available for nursing, human resources, social work, and counseling.

Please call Susan Sherman at 410-822-0444, or e-mail ssherman@mhamdes.org for more information, or to register for this training.
