ADULT Mental Health First Aid
This 8-hour training course is designed to give you key skills to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or is experiencing a mental health crisis.  Just as CPR training helps a layperson without medical training assist an individual following a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid training helps a layperson to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental health illnesses and addictions.

The evidence behind MHFA demonstrates that it makes people feel more comfortable managing a crisis situation and builds mental health literacy.

YOUTH Mental Health First Aid
A young person you know could be experiencing a mental health challenge or crisis. You can help them.

You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, student, neighbor, or member of the community — in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to young people showing signs of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self-help care.

Anyone can take the 8-hour Youth Mental Health First Aid course, but it is ideally designed for adults who work with young people, ages 12-18 — teachers, coaches, leaders of faith communities, social workers, and other caring citizens.

QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer —3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide.

The mission of QPR is to save lives and reduce suicidal behaviors by providing innovative, practical and proven suicide prevention training.  QPR will train people to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade and refer someone to help. We believe that quality education empowers all people, regardless of their background, to make a positive difference in the life of someone they know.

What is a Gatekeeper?

According to the Surgeon General’s National Strategy for Suicide Prevention (2001), a gatekeeper is someone in a position to recognize a crisis and the warning signs that someone may be contemplating suicide.

Gatekeepers can be anyone, but include parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, ministers, doctors, nurses, office supervisors, squad leaders, foremen, police officers, advisors, caseworkers, firefighters, and many others who are strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide.

As a QPR-trained Gatekeeper you will learn to:

• Recognize the warning signs of suicide

• Know how to offer hope

• Know how to get help and save a life
