Region 2 Human Services Offers Mental Health First Aid Training in North Platte

Event Dates and Times

Region 1, North Platte
The Region 2 area is Part of National Initiative to Increase Mental Health Literacy
On Monday, October 9, Region 2 Human Services will be offering Youth Mental Health First Aid
training in North Platte. This groundbreaking 8-hour training course gives people the tools to
identify when someone might be struggling with a mental health or substance use problem and
to connect them with appropriate support and resources when necessary.
1 in 5 Americans has a mental illness, but many are reluctant to seek help or might not know
where to turn for care. Unlike physical conditions, symptoms of mental health and substance
use problems can be difficult to detect. For friends and family members, it can be hard to know
when and how to step in. As a result, those in need of mental health services often do not get
them until it is too late.
Just as CPR helps even those without clinical training assist an individual having a heart attack,
Mental Health First Aid prepares participants to interact with a person experiencing a mental
health crisis. Mental Health First Aiders learn a 5-step action plan that guides them through the
process of reaching out and offering appropriate support.
“Through this program, we hope to take the fear and hesitation out of starting conversations
about mental health and substance use problems ,” says Linda Rosenberg President and CEO
of the National Council for Behavioral Health, which helped bring Mental Health First Aid to the
U.S. in 2008. “ When more people are equipped with the tools they need to start a dialogue,
more people can get the help they may need.”
In just ten years, Mental Health First Aid has become a full-blown movement in the United
States—more than 1 million people are certified Mental Health First Aiders, and that number is
growing every day.
“We all have been affected by the results of a mental health crisis, and this class is an excellent
tool for anyone who wants to provide help and support to the community and is especially useful
for those who work closely with the youth of our area. Mental Health Awareness and Trainings
like Mental Health First Aid are a tremendous way to strengthen your community and provide a
secure environment for the youth of the area that we love and care about. I have been
instructing these courses for the past 5 years and it is my goal to make the training as popular
as CPR and First Aid is for all Nebraska citizens.”
