Upcoming Training: “Psychological First Aid”

Course Link

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.
