Mental Health First Aid Training

April 12, 2018

The Mountain Homeless Coalition (MHC) is sponsoring a public training entitled, “Mental
Health First Aid” which is an 8-hour course that teaches you how to help someone who may be experiencing a mental health or substance use disorder challenge. The training helps you
identify, understand and respond to signs of addiction and mental illness.
“Everyone should feel empowered to share their story and discuss their mental wellness without fear of judgment and everyone should know how to respond when they see someone in crisis,” said Cynthia Germanotta, President and Co-Founder of Born This Way Foundation. “Mental Health First Aid is a powerful tool to help demystify mental health and break down barriers to treatment.” Lady Gaga Co-founded the Born This Way Foundation with her mother, Cynthia Germanotta.
The country’s 1 million First Aiders include everyone from police officers, teachers and
employers to Kansas Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins, former Congressman Patrick Kennedy and NFL wide receiver Brandon Marshall. The eight-hour course is offered around the country.
Oprah Winfrey and 60 Minutes underscored the impact of trauma in our world. It’s time we
recognize the importance of trauma-informed care. This can be critical in treatment for addiction and mental health.
The National Council for Behavioral Health introduced Mental Health First Aid USA and more
than 1 million Americans have been trained. For more information, please go to the National
