Mental Health First Aid

In All Community Members, Programs by NAMI Wood County

Someone you know could be experiencing a mental illness or crisis. You can help them.

You are more likely to encounter someone — a friend, family member, coworker, neighbor, or member of the community — in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to people with the signs and symptoms of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self-help care. Anyone can take the 8-hour Mental Health First Aid course — first responders, students, teachers, leaders of faith communities, human resources professionals, and caring citizens. Sometimes, the best first aid is you. Take the course, save a life, strengthen your community.
