A Mental Health First Aid (MFHA) course for adult Spanish speakers will be provided free Thursday, February 6, in Commerce City at Bison Ridge Recreation Center, 13905 E. 112th Ave. These courses give people the skills to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. Just as CPR training helps a person with no clinical training assist an individual following a heart attack, MHFA training helps a person assist someone experiencing a mental health crisis such as contemplating suicide. In both situations, the goal is to help support an individual until appropriate professional help arrives. Visit https://www.communityreachcenter.org/resources/mental-health-first-aid/mhfa-class-schedule/ for more information.
