How would you react if someone in your library was experiencing a mental health crisis? Would you know what to say or do? Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training can equip anyone with the tools necessary to assist someone during a mental health crisis. It’s not training to make a diagnosis, but rather what to say or do, and how to get the help necessary for someone who is in a crisis situation.

The Missouri Department of Mental Health’s Librarian 411 Project will offer four free MHFA trainings for Missouri library staff in fall 2014 and spring 2015. We need your help in determining where and when these workshops will take place. Please take a moment to complete our brief survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ZRJ78KQ.

This activity is supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act as administered by the Missouri State Library, a division of the Office of the Secretary of State.
