Gadsden Police Sgt. John Hallman said all the departments sworn officers received an eight-hour block of training on mental health first aid. Just as CPR helps even those without clinical training assist an individual having a heart attack, mental health first aid prepares participants to interact with a person experiencing a mental health crisis, Josh Martin stated in a press release. Mental health first aiders learn a five-step action plan that guides them through the process of reaching out and offering appropriate support. Martin said the first aid training is available for people in any setting that might put them in contact with people with mental illness churches, shelters, etc. Martin said the state is putting the money that used to go to mental health facilities into community programs such as local group homes, which prepares the clients to return to their local communities. Success for those people, he said, often depends on the support structure they have in the community. The training included ideas that could benefit anyone trying to assist someone with mental illness during a difficult time: Show that you are concerned; try to get the person out of a hectic situation; remain calm; speak reassuringly, but firmly; dont try to touch the patient; get medical help if needed; speak slowing and clearly; use short sentences; be patient; acknowledge the terror the person may be feeling; and remind them even though their fear is real, its not life-threatening. When someone has a panic attack, Martin gave as an example, they can feel like they are dying or having a heart attack. Officers had opportunity to ask questions about conditions and the way they should try to respond. As police officers, some trainees said, they may have other duties during an encounter with a mental patient such as public safety.
