The Center for Wellness and Wellbeing at Santa Monica College presents Mental Health First Aid, a workshop series for students, faculty and staff.
Mental Health First Aid is an internationally recognized training program that will provide:
1. An overview of mental health disorders
2. How to recognize risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems
3. How to utilize practical tools to provide initial help to individuals experiencing mental health problems
The training consists of two 4-hour workshops (with a 30-minute break for lunch). Completion of both workshops will make you eligible for Mental Health First Aid certification. If you attend both workshops, you will be eligible to earn a certificate in Mental Health First Aid and receive a Mental Health First Aid manual that you can take home and use for future reference.
This workshop will cover Panic Attacks, Traumatic Events, Psychosis, and Substance Use Disorders.
