    The office of Student Support Services at Oklahoma City Community College is offering a Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) course!  MHFA is the help offered to a person developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. The first aid is given until appropriate treatment and support are received or until the crisis resolves.  This is an 8-hour course that qualifies for eight (8) continuing education hours.

    The aims of MHFA are to:

    • ·         Preserve life when a person may be a danger to self or others
    • ·         Provide help to prevent the problem from becoming more serious
    • ·         Promote and enhance recovery
    • ·         Provide comfort and support

    Mental Health First Aid teaches the public how to recognize symptoms of mental health problem, how to offer and provide initial help, and how to guide a person toward appropriate treatments and other supportive help. Mental Health First Aid does not teach people to be therapists.
