Lighthouse, in partnership with CHI Franciscan Health’s Prevent-Avert-Respond (PAR) Mental Health Initiative, is hosting a Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training on Saturday, November 4. We encourage all ministry leaders to attend. This training is intended for adults 18+. Lunch is provided.
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is the initial help given to someone who may be developing a mental illness or experiencing a mental health crisis. The aid provided is not a substitute for professional help, but may help in stabilizing the person until appropriate professional or other assistance can be engaged.
MHFA training teaches participants a five-step action plan to support someone developing signs and symptoms of a mental illness or experiencing an emotional crisis. Like CPR, Mental Health First Aid prepares participants to interact with a person in crisis and connect that person with the qualified help they need.
