  • Mental Health First Aiders learn a single 5-step strategy that includes assessing risk, respectfully listening to and supporting the individual in crisis, and identifying appropriate professional help and other supports. 
  • Interactive activities that teach participants how to intervene when a person is going through a mental health crisis
