Mental Health First Aid

In a collaborative partnership with Carroll Community College, the Carroll County Health Department has developed Mental Health First Aid training to be offered free of charge to community members. Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour course that helps participants identify someone experiencing a mental health crisis or the early stages of a mental health disorder. The training explains the most common mental health problems, where and when to get help, and what type of help has been shown to be effective. Our goal is to have Carroll County recognized as a community that values Mental Health First Aid and is adequately prepared to implement it.

Information about local Mental Health First Aid courses is available from the Carroll County Health Department at 800-966-3877 or 410-876-2152.
