Leslie Roberts recalls hearing a mother talk about getting her stepson admitted to a psychiatric hospital. “Her stepson was angry and acting out,” said Roberts. “She didn’t understand what her stepson was doing.” The woman had completed a mental health first aid class that Roberts teaches.

The goal of the class is to offer insight into mental illness and teach strategies for intervention.
