About the Event

This Thursday, March 17th, at 11:00am we will be having a First Aid for Mental Health Class in the Fellowship Hall of the church. This first aid training for mental health is a two-part live, virtual webinar. Leading the training is Chris White, an international UK government hostage and crisis negotiator and First Aid for Mental Health trainer. This training will teach you how to identify and understand mental health challenges with empathy, and without judgment.

Session 1 - The Basics Duration: 60 minutes

The first session teaches the foundational concepts of mental health, the ability to identify when you or someone else may have mental health needs that require assistance and the skills to start a conversation and get them the help they need. Session 1 includes topics on:

  • Current mental health challenges and statistics
  • Influences, stress, vulnerability and self-awareness
  • Stigma, discrimination and promoting inclusion
  • Identifying and coping with stress; exploring our own ‘stress signatures’
  • First Aid for Mental Health: principles to approaching and helping others
