Mental Health First Aid Course is organized by Mosaic Community Services and will be held on Jun 18, 2019 at Mosaic Community Services Psychiatric Rehabilitation, Timonium, Maryland, United States of America. Course Description: Mental Health First Aid is a public education program designed to teach members of the public how to respond in a mental health emergency and to offer support to someone who appears to be in emotional distress. Mental Health First Aid is included on the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP). One in five Americans will have a diagnosable mental disorder at some point in their lives. Mental health disorders are common and include anxiety, depression, substance use, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Mental Health First Aid is similar to traditional First Aid. Just as First Aid provides help to an injured person until professional medical treatment is available, Mental Health First Aid is the help offered to a person developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis until appropriate treatment and support are received or until the crisis is resolved. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
