The Colorado Center for Alternative Lifestyles has received an award of $2000 from the Colorado Behavioral Healthcare Council (CBHC).
This award will be used to acquire the certification required to offer Mental Health First Aid training to members of our Colorado communities.
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a groundbreaking, internationally recognized evidence-based training program committed to empowering individuals to identify, understand and respond to those in mental health and substance abuse crises.
The aims of Mental Health First Aid are to:
- Reduce stigma
- Create a common language around mental health
- Preserve life when a person may be a danger to self or others
- Help others identify, prevent or intervene early when mental health challenges occur
- Promote and enhance recovery
ColoradoCAL is incredibly grateful to CBHC for the award and look forward to being able to make the information and resources available soon.
