The presenter is Lea Ann Browning - McNee from the Mental Health Association of Maryland. This webinar overviews Mental Health First Aid, a national program that helps laypersons identify and respond to people who are showing signs and symptoms of mental illness or are experiencing a crisis --- much as CPR helps non-clinicians respond to medical emergencies. Webinar participants will be introduced to the signs of mental stress and specifically red flag behaviors, how to support a person experiencing a mental health problem and what steps to take until professional treatment is received. You’ll also learn how to earn your certification in the program and how to bring Mental Health First Aid to your community.
