At Netsmart, we strongly believe that mental health is equally as important as physical health. Just as first aid may help someone with an injury in an emergency, so does Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) when it comes to someone experiencing a mental health or substance use crisis. We offer all of our associates the opportunity to take an eight-hour course where they learn about the risk factors and warning signs of someone in mental health distress and are equipped with the tools to help.
As part of their full Netsmart experience, our #FUTURES18 were certified in MHFA and learned the skills necessary to be able to intervene and provide assistance in a time of crisis. Watch below as they share about their experience with the training and what MHFA means to them.
