Mental Health First Aid Lumberton

August 14, 2023

Join us for Mental Health First Aid!

September 13, 2023 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Partnership for Children

Are you a provider working within Robeson County and looking for ways to enhance your skills to help support families and fellow co-workers?

In the same way CPR training equips an individual to intervene in the event of a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid (MHA) equips participants to assist when someone is experiencing a mental health or substance use related challenge.

This 8-hour course is available to those who desire to increase their capacity to identify, understand, and provide initial help and support in both crisis and non-crisis situations. MHFA also teaches the importance of recovery and resilience.

What to expect:

  • Learn how to reach out to someone struggling, listen without judgement, and give reassurance.
  • Take the fear and hesitation out of conversations about mental health and substance use.
  • Understand how to refer a person to appropriate professional support and services.
