Building a mental health vocabulary

 

Oct. 24, 2017 – As part of the County’s commitment to addressing mental illness in Cabarrus, local leaders are participating in Mental Health First Aid trainings.

Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis. In the Mental Health First Aid course you learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help.

You, too, can become involved.

For more information on mental health initiatives in Cabarrus County or to learn more about upcoming Mental Health First Aid sessions, call 704-920-3160.
