Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a nationally recognized public education program that introduces participants to risk factors and warning signs of mental illness, builds understanding of their impact, and overviews common supports. By providing Mental Health First Aid training to our community, we hope to give participants the capacity to obtain, process and understand the health information and services needed to make appropriate decisions and seek care. The program teaches people how to assess a situation, select and implement appropriate interventions and help a person in crisis or developing the signs and symptoms of mental illness. The training equips people to provide initial help until appropriate professional, peer or family support can be engaged.

Nancy Schieble, a PMHC employee and certified MHFA USA instructor, is ready to offer training to a variety of audiences including, but not limited to: business leaders, faith communities, employers, public entities, other social service agencies, etc. in Lower Bucks County.  Call 267-587-2300, ext. 1104 for more information.
