Yulee, FL, – Registration is now open for the Adult Mental Health First Aid class scheduled Saturday, February 1, 2020, from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. The classes are free and open to the public, but registration is required. The 8-hour classes take place at the main campus of Starting Point Behavioral Healthcare at 463142 SR 200 in Yulee, FL.

The Mental Health First Aid program teaches participants a five-step action plan to assess a situation, select and implement interventions and secure appropriate care for the person who is experiencing a mental health or addictions challenge or is in crisis. 

Studies have proven the CPR-like program is effective in improving knowledge of mental disorders, reducing stigma and increasing the amount of help provided to others.  

Mental Health First Aid training classes are offered via open community classes or scheduled individually for groups and organizations. For more information or to register for a class, visit or call Katrina Robinson-Wheeler at 904.415.9350.
