Liberal Arts undergraduates are invited to join the Jana Marie Foundation as they lead a training for Adult Mental Health First Aid. Completion of this program will result in an Adult Mental Health First Aid Certificate, which can be marketed to employers and graduate schools on your résumé.
Anyone, anywhere can be the one to make a difference in the life of someone with a mental health or substance use challenge – if they know what to do and what to say. Mental Health First Aid can give you the necessary tools to have a courageous conversation.
Mental Health First Aid was created in Australia in 2001 by Betty Kitchener, a nurse specializing in health education, and Tony Jorm, a respected mental health literacy professor. The National Council for Behavioral Health operates Mental Health First Aid USA in partnership with the Missouri Department of Mental Health.
The Adult Mental Health First Aid course is appropriate for anyone 18 years and older who wants to learn how to help a person who may be experiencing a mental-health-related crisis or challenge. Topics covered include (but are not limited to) anxiety, depression, psychosis, and addiction. Learn more about available resources and how to help someone in need.
Lunch will be provided.
