Recording: Supporting Prevention Interventions with Mental Health First Aid Training

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) takes the same approach as traditional first aid: offer short-term comfort to someone until professional assistance or support from a family member or peer arrives. With MHFA, the focus can be on a range of needs from a developing mental health condition to a full-blown mental health crisis or overdose.

This webinar will focus on the Continuum of Care to identify how Preventionists can use MHFA to achieve substance abuse prevention. The substance abuse preventionist can expect to identify how the Mental Health First Aid course interventions address prevention at the Institute of Medicine's three levels of risk; universal, selective, and indicated.
