The NERD Health and Wellness Center offers Mental Health First Aid training during an eight-hour, two-day course in August. This groundbreaking course gives people the tools to identify when someone might be struggling with a mental health or substance use problem and to connect them with appropriate support and resources when necessary.
One in 5 Americans has a mental illness, but many are reluctant to seek help or might not know where to turn for care. For friends and family members, it can be hard to know when and how to step in. As a result, those in need of mental health services often do not get them until it is too late.
