MENtalHealthMonday - Getting 'Mental Health First Aid' Certified!

Monday, December 3rd

We've all heard of a First-AID kid, and most people would know how to use one.  You've dressed a wound after falling and scraping your knee.  But what exactly is MENTAL HEALTH first aid?  I took a class to get certified and found out.  While I won't go through EVERYTHING they teach in the class, I'll give you a basic understanding as to WHY it's a good idea to do - even if its just to educate yourself on Mental Health as a whole, being able to help someone who is in mental distress could be critical.  Much like First Aid, it's not something you would use ALL THE TIME, but when its needed - you could help save someone's life.  Find out all about Mental Health First Aid in this week's MENtal Health Monday.
