Registration Open for Faculty Mental Health First Aid Training

Thursday, May 8


Are you not sure how to approach a student you're concerned about? Worried doing or saying the wrong thing? Not sure where to take students for help? Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack — even if you have no clinical training — Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health related crisis.

In the 8-hour interactive course, faculty will 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.

Training dates are 1-5 p.m. May 21 and 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. May 22 in the Aurora Room, Idaho Commons. Course registration is $25 per participant. View more information and register online at www.uidaho.edu/mentalhealthfirstaid.
