Are you interested in learning more about mental health and don’t know where to start?
Do you want to learn how to help when someone you know is in crisis?
Join the more than one million Americans who have taken the first step to stomp out stigma in their own communities with Mental Health First Aid.
Mental Health First Aid is more important now than ever before. In the past, it was believed that 1 in 5 Americans would experience a mental illness in any given year. However, with the events of 2020 and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we now know that almost everyone has faced a mental health challenge this year.
When you attend Mental Health First Aid, you’ll learn how to identify the signs and symptoms of a range of mental health and substance use disorders, and will build the skills and confidence to help someone in crisis.
The health of our community members is of utmost importance, and in order to do our part, Jefferson Center is following the CDC’s guidelines regarding public gatherings. All Mental Health First Aid classes will be held in a virtual setting until further notice.
This course is designed for anyone who would like to make their community a healthier, happier, and safer place for all. Mental Health First Aiders are neighbors, parents, friends, veterans, first responders, people in recovery, and community leaders. Everyone is welcome to join this community!
