Pre-Conference Feature: Mental Health First Aid: I’m Not a Clinician, How Can I Help?

Sometimes, first aid isn’t a bandage, or CPR, or the Heimlich, or calling 911.

Sometimes, first aid is you! A young person you know could be experiencing a mental health crisis. You can help them.

You are more likely to encounter someone in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Our pre-conference workshop “Mental Health First Aid: I’m Not a Clinician, How Can I Help?” teaches a five-step action plan to offer support to young people who are showing signs of mental illness or crisis and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, and/or self help care.

Anyone can attend this pre-conference workshop, but it is designed for adults who work with young people, ages 2-18, but aren’t clinicians—people like teachers, coaches, leaders of faith communities, social workers, and other caring citizens.

Sometimes, the best first aid is you. Take the course, save a life, strengthen your community.
