Samaritan Health Services invites community members, including military members, veterans and their families, to register for a veteran-focused Mental Health First Aid course.

The course will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 7, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center, 3600 NW Samaritan Drive.

Mental Health First Aid is a free eight-hour training that provides participants with the tools to identify signs of a mental health problem or crisis and get help for a person in need.

This course uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to offer initial help in a mental health crisis and connect people to the appropriate professional, peer, social and self-help care. The program also teaches common risk factors and warning signs of specific illnesses like anxiety, depression, substance use, bipolar disorder, eating disorders and schizophrenia.

Registration is required and space is limited. To register, call 866-243-7747 or email SHSHealthEd@samhealth.org. To learn more about Mental Health First Aid, visit samhealth.org/MentalHealthFirstAid.
