1 min read

FARMINGTON – NAMI Maine is excited to offer an Adult Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) course that is a free skills-based training teaching participants who are 18 years or older how to identify, understand, and respond to adults who are struggling with a mental health challenge.

MHFA is a national best-practice, evidenced-based certification course that is eight hours in length and leads to a three-year certification issued by the National Council for Mental Wellbeing.

This virtual group training is six hours in length along with two hours of pre-work. The group training for this event will take place on Tuesday, May 9, from 8:30 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Participants will learn:

– Risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems
– Information on depression, anxiety, trauma, psychosis, and addiction disorders
– A five-step action plan to help someone developing a mental health problem or in crisis
– Where to turn for help: professional, peer, and self-help resources

MHFA teaches about recovery and resiliency – the belief that individuals experiencing these challenges can and do get better and use their strengths to stay well.
