Space for this training is limited, and registration is required. There will be small breaks and a lunch break during the day. However, lunch will not be provided.

Mental Health First Aid for Adults teaches participants how to recognize signs of mental health or substance use challenges in adults ages 18 and older, offer and provide initial help, and guide a person toward appropriate care if necessary.

Attendees should expect to learn how to respond to both crisis and non-crisis situations with the MHFA Action Plan (ALGEE):

• Assess for risk of suicide or harm.
• Listen non-judgmentally.
• Give reassurance and information.
• Encourage appropriate professional help.
• Encourage self-help and other support strategies.

Upon completion, attendees will receive a certificate. Participating professionals can use this certificate for continuing education credits.

For more information on the upcoming MFHA training, please contact Amanda Evans, MPH, Health Education Program Consultant, at Amanda.Evans@flhealth.gov or call (239) 332-9501.
