MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID

The Mental Health Association also offers free Mental Health First Aid training classes to individuals in Fauquier, Rappahannock and Culpeper counties. 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 substance use concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help.

After completing this course, you will learn basic interventions for someone who is experiencing:

  • Panic attacks
  • Suicidal thoughts or behaviors
  • Non-suicidal self-injury
  • Overdose or withdrawal from alcohol or drug use
  • Reaction to a traumatic event

Mental Health First Aid is offered in two formats:

ADULT Mental Health First Aid

This course is appropriate for anyone 18 years and older who wants to learn how to help an adult who may be experiencing a mental health or substance-use related problem.

YOUTH Mental Health First Aid

This course is designed to teach parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, school staff, peers, neighbors, health and human services workers, and other caring citizens how to help an adolescent (age 12-18) who is experiencing a mental health or addiction challenge or is in crisis. Youth Mental Health First Aid is primarily designed for adults who regularly interact with young people.
