Colonial Behavioral Health is offering a FREE Mental Health First Aid (MHFA)-Adult training. Participants will receive a course manual with additional tips and resources.

Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack, MHFA helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health problem or crisis. In the MHFA course, you learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help.

MHFA-Adult teaches the public how to recognize symptoms of mental health problems, how to offer and provide initial help, and how to guide a person toward appropriate treatments and other supportive help.

Sometimes, the best first aid is you.
Take the course, save a life, strengthen your community.

Date: September 26
Time: 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Location: James City County Recreation Center-Meeting Room C
  5301 Longhill Road, Williamsburg, VA 23188  

The training is limited to 15 attendees. Advanced registration is required.
