Mental Health First Aid - Military and Vets

April 7th— 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM

This FREE one day class teaches the common risk factors and warning signs of specific types of illnesses such as anxiety, depression, substance use disorder, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia.

Family members and personnel working with military and families are often not aware of how to engage veterans with mental illnesses and addictions. In addition to the impact of military service on the veteran, each has a circle of family and friends who are also impacted by their military service.

Mental Health First Aid offers a tailored supplement that builds upon the effectiveness of the standard Mental Health First Aid curriculum by focusing on the unique experiences and needs of the military, veteran and family population
