In the Mental Health First Aid course, you learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help. Topics that are covered are depression and mood disorders, anxiety disorders, trauma, psychosis and substance use disorders.
