Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. Participants will learn how to apply the Mental Health First Aid action plan in a variety of situations. Classes usually consist of 30 people or less and are offered in a respectful community setting in English or Spanish. This event is sponsored by Lake County Health Department and Community Health Center in partnership with YWCA Lake County. This classes are free of charge thanks to funds received through a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration SAMHSA Grant.
