Graham County School District is pleased to offer this course!  Please select the date for more details.

Located in the Graham County General Services Building, 921 Thatcher Blvd. in Safford.

Someone you know could be experiencing a mental illness or crisis - YOU CAN HELP THEM!  You are more likely to encounter someone - friend, family member, coworker, neighbor, or member of the community - in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack.

Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to people with the signs and symptoms of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self help care.  Anyone can take the 8-hour Mental Health First Aid course - first responders, students, teachers, leaders of faith communities, human resources professionals.
