Mental Health First Aid: For Veterans and Persons Working with Veterans in our Community
Family members and personnel working with military, veterans and families are often not aware of how to engage veterans with mental illnesses and addictions. Mental Health First Aid training aims to increase mental health literacy and to decrease stigmatizing attitudes in our communities. Like regular First Aid or CPR, Mental Health First Aid is designed to give people the skills to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. The course uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to recognize and respond to the warning signs of specific illnesses.
Mental Health First Aid is a valuable resource that can make a difference in the lives of the more than 22 million service members, veterans and their families.
REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED, SPACE IS LIMITED.
DATE: Wednesday, April 1, 2020 from 8:30am to 5:00pm
LOCATION: American Red Cross Regional Headquarters, 8550 Arlington Blvd., Fairfax, VA 22031
