Feedback from Adult Mental Health First Aid Workshops very successful.
The IHHC is pleased to report great turn-outs and participant satisfaction with its first two Adult Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Workshops, supported by a grant from the Detroit Wayne Mental Health Authority.
The first workshop was held at Madonna University in Livonia on May 17th followed by the second workshop at St. Josaphat Catholic Church - Canticle Café in Detroit, Michigan on June 18th - plus a third on August 6th.
The Adult-MHFA is an evidence-based workshop taught by Instructors certified through the National Behavioral Health Council. Participants learn how to recognize the signs that a person may be in crisis, considering suicide or experiencing a mental disorder.
A five-step ALGEE Action plan provides the tools for how participants learn to provide assistance in these situations until appropriate help is obtained or the problem is resolved.
Here are some comments from participants:
“I learned so much, and I feel much more prepared to help people with mental illness.”
“Would love to get other colleagues involved in repeat presentations.”
“It is refreshing that we are talking about mental health and how we can help others. This course will open people’s eyes about mental health and how we can show compassion and understanding.”
