Mental Health First Aid Training

Central Cass School District STEM Center - 802 N 5th St Casselton, ND

NDSU Extension and FirstLink are jointly supporting upcoming training sessions in Adult Mental Health First Aid. Sometimes you need help. Sometimes you are help. This training can provide you with awareness and skills to support the mental and emotional health of oneself, others dealing with stress or working in agriculture, or those supporting the agricultural industry. This training is offered through support from the ND Farm and Ranch Stress Assistance Center grant (USDA-NIFA).  

What is Mental Health First Aid? 
Mental Health First Aid is a skills-based training course that teaches participants about mental health and substance use issues. It helps you with the skills to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental health concerns (such as depression, substance misuse, or suicidal thinking), such as listening, giving support, and connecting someone with appropriate professional resources. The intent is to develop skills in understanding, support, and referral. This is an evidence-based program.
