Netsmart Supports Mental Health First Aid

Netsmart is committed to supporting the National Council for Behavioral Health as they continue to grow their movement to train one million people in the US in Mental Health First Aid. To do this, Netsmart has implemented a first of its kind whole-company Mental Health First Aid training program.

Just as CPR and first aid training helps you assist an individual in physical distress or need, Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis. Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify risk factors and warning signs, strategies to assist and where to seek professional help for those who may be experiencing a mental or behavioral crisis.

Covered topics in the course include:

  • Depression and mood disorders
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Trauma
  • Psychosis
  • Substance use disorders
