About the event
Mental Health First Aid for Older Adults addresses the unique mental health challenges people aged 50 and older experience and teaches participants how to notice and respond to an older adult who may be living with a mental illness or addiction. Mental Health First Aid for Older Adults teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. This training — which focuses on the unique experiences and needs of adults over the age of 65 — gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem and help connect them to the appropriate care.
