About the Course
Because mental health crises are so common, Psych Hub decided to create a course that will help anyone to accurately describe signs of a mental health crisis and identify practical skills that may be used to support someone who needs help. This approximately 1 hour course is full of live-filmed and animated videos, as well as learner focused activities and up-to-date statistics from governing bodies and relevant scholarly articles.
After finishing this course, we believe you will be able to notice signs of a mental health crisis, substance overdose or withdrawal, or suicide risk. You should also be able to list community resources for crisis support and link individuals with the help they need.
