Help Plan Mental Health First Aid Training

mental health bannerHelp finalize plans for a mental health first aid training this fall for refugee community leaders and healthcare providers by taking a short survey (available here) before August 5.

The Minnesota Department of Health plans to offer a free, eight-hour couse that will help providers and community leaders make a first response and appropriate referrals to refugees who are experiencing mental health symptoms or in crisis.

The course is designed to:

  • introduce risk factors, warning signs, and symptoms for a range of mental health issues
  • build understanding of the impact and prevalence of mental health conditions
  • provide an overview of mental health support and treatment resources
  • offer concrete tools to use in a mental health crisis situation about what to do and where to find help.
