Mental Health First Aid USA for Library Staff

October 09, 2012, 3:00pm EST.  (Sponsored by ALA)

The in-person Mental Health First Aid course has been taught to library staff around the country, teaching how to recognize the signs and symptoms of mental illness, provide support, deescalate crisis, and if appropriate, refer individuals to services. This highly interactive program employs scenarios and activities to show how to respond in a variety of situations. In this webinar we will briefly outline the history, mission, and pedagogy of the course, then focus on the specific areas of anxiety disorders and psychosis. Library staff who participate in this webinar will learn some practical skills they can take back to their site or organization.
