Sometimes, first aid isn’t a bandage, or CPR, or the Heimlich, or calling 911. Sometimes, first aid is YOU! Someone you know could be experiencing a mental illness or crisis. You can help them. You are more likely to encounter someone — 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. Mental Health First Aid Course – 8 hour public course 8:00 am – 4:30 pm (registration starts at 7:30am) North Penn Community Health Foundation 2506 N Broad Street Suite 206 Colmar, PA 18915 See back for registration and contact information. This course brought to you by NAMI Montgomery County and NAMI Main Line and the SE Regional MH Services Coordination Office
