HOPE Clinic’s recent Mental Health First Aid Training was facilitated by Jewish Family Services through our project Asian Americans Attaining Awareness. This project is funded by the Hogg Foundation for Mental Health as part of their Communities of Care initiative. The event was an in-person training for community partners and service providers who wanted to learn more about mental illnesses and addictions, including risk factors and warning signs. This 8-hour training taught participants a 5-step action plan to help a person in crisis connect with professional, peer, social, and self-help care. The course introduced participants to risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems, built understanding of their impact and reviewed common treatments. The course offered easy-to-follow materials for non-clinicians to identify, understand, and provide initial help to individuals in crisis or showing symptoms of a mental illness or substance use disorder. The course is a terrific opportunity to bring people together across the community on a topic of importance to everyone.
