Mental Health First Aid One-Day Course

Mental Health First Aid, CE credit hours: 8 hours

“As a society, we largely remain ignorant about the signs and symptoms of mental illnesses, and we ignore our role as responsible health care professionals to help people experiencing these illnesses.

Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour course that introduces participants to risk factors and warning signs of mental health concerns, builds understanding of their impact, and overviews common treatments. The course uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to assess a mental health crisis; select interventions and provide initial help; and connect persons to professional, peer and social supports as well as self-help resources. In an effort to share potentially life-saving information with Eastern International College faculty, staff and students, the Dental Hygiene Program is offering Mental Health First Aid as a community education program.

Mental Health First Aid is offered as a one-day, eight hour course on May 19, 2018 .The cost of the course being offered is at only $199.00 and $ 99.00 for our EIC students, employees, and alumni to expand health professions students and faculty involvement, and is being held at the EIC Jersey City campus at684 Newark Ave, Jersey City, NJ 07306.
