This course is being offered free-of-charge on Coursera.org. The instructor for the course is from Johns Hopkins.
I have not taken this particular course, but it is one I just signed up for and thought I would share a link to it here in case anyone is interested in learned how to respond when they meet someone experiencing a mental health crisis. I have taken other courses through Coursera, and found them to be worth the time it took to take part.
This Psychological First aid course is a 6 week course requiring 1 – 3 hours of time per week
Dates: May 18, 2015 through June 27, 2015
If you complete the course with a grade of 70% or higher you will receive a certificate of completion.
The course is for people wanting to help someone else who is in crisis and is not appropriate if you are someone seeking help due to crisis.
