Mental Health First Aid

In 2015, Jewish Family Service offered Mental Health First Aid (LINK) workshops to the community. This nationally accredited program trains participants to assess mental health, give aid in a crisis, and respond to signs of mental illness and substance abuse. Workshops cover such topics as the signs of addiction and mental illness, local resources, and a five-step action plan to assess a situation and provide help.

Our participants have become part of the over 27,000 Mental Health First Aiders in the state of Michigan; only three other states have more.

If you’d like to learn how to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illness and substance abuse, contact Erica Saum at 248.592.2664 or esaum@jfsdetroit.org.
