Rabbi Hammer Delivers the First Mental Health First Aid Course in Israel

This course which is certified by the international organization of Mental-Health FIrst-Aid explains what Mental Health Illness is, and covers the gamut of Mental Health illnesses. Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is the initial help given to someone who is developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or a mental health crisis. The first aid is given until appropriate professional support is received or until the crisis resolves. Participants learn the signs and symptoms of mental health problems and what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective. They learn and practice a framework for communication, how to offer and provide initial help, and how to guide a person towards appropriate treatments and other supportive help. The course offers opportunities to participate, discuss scenarios and practice skills via interactive exercises. Our instructors are trained to support your participation and learning and educated with proper certification to disseminate this most informative and sensitive material. Course content is derived from a number of consensus studies incorporating the expertise of hundreds of researchers, clinicians, service user advocates and career advocates across the western world. The program has been extensively evaluated and found to be effective in improving mental health literacy, reducing stigma, increasing helping behaviors and improving participants’ own mental health. These evaluations have been carried out in the workplace and community settings. Israel is the 29th country worldwide to offer and license MHFA and as such, become an integral part of saving lives!!
