What is Mental Health First Aid?

Mental Health First Aid is an evidenced based public education program that teaches people the key skills needed to help someone with a mental health problem or crisis. Mental Health First Aid focuses on the skills that can be used until professional help is obtained. Upon completion of this 8 hour training program, participants receive a Mental Health First Aid Certificate.

Who are Mental Health First Aid Trainers?

The Linden Oaks at Edward team has been provided the privilege of becoming one of the first trained organizations in the Midwest. As trainers of Mental Health First Aid, our goal is to make responding to a mental health crisis as common as utilizing CPR in a cardiac emergency.
