Mental Health First Aid is like CPR for a Mind in Crisis

CBS News Miami covering mental health first aid

Taking action in a crisis is crucial, much like performing CPR for someone who isn’t breathing. This concept extends to mental health through the Mental Health First Aid course offered by The Jeff Masarek Behavioral Health Center at Goodman Jewish Family Services (JFS) through the National Council for Mental Well-Being.

Dr. Allison Golden, Director of Behavioral Health at JFS, explains the importance of the course in this CBS Miami Mental Health Matters segment. The course is designed for everyday individuals to recognize and respond to mental distress within their communities and among loved ones.

By developing these skills, individuals become more adept at addressing mental health issues, ultimately fostering a more supportive and understanding environment.
