A staggering one in four adults experience mental illness.
The Greater Baltimore Committee’s Health Care Committee is holding a Mental Health First Aid training next month, recognizing the need to help those affected by mental illness and the role of mental health as part of corporate wellness.
Mosaic Community Services, Maryland’s largest community-based behavioral health service provider, will administer the training to teach participants how to help others, such as their coworkers, who are developing a mental illness or in a crisis.
Mental Health First Aid teaches:
- Signs of addictions and mental illnesses.
- A five-step action plan to assess a situation and help.
- Impact of mental and substance use disorders.
- Local resources and where to turn for help.
