Mental Health First Aid is an eight-hour in-person course for faculty, staff, and students, which teaches the risk factors and warning signs of mental health and substance use related crises, and how to recognize a problem, give reassurance, and refer them to seek professional help.
These courses are part of Metropolitan State University’s ongoing efforts to reduce and prevent suicide by providing gatekeeper trainings, which teach participants to recognize signs of distress in people and to connect that person to helpful resources.
You can help to prevent suicide at Metropolitan State University. Suicide prevention is all of our business, and everyone can play a role to help.
The next session will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Jan. 31, at the Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice Education Center, 9110 Brooklyn Blvd.
