    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- It's easy to tell when someone might be suffering from a heart attack, is choking, or is unable to breathe. But what does depression look like? Or Anxiety?

    This Morning we're bringing awareness to Mental Health First Aid. Mandy Richardson with Centers for Youth and Families stops by "THV 11 News This Morning" to explain.

    National Institute of Mental Health says 32.4 percent or 75 million Americans suffer from a mental disorder every year. 

    Mental disorders include severe depression, psychosis, panic attack, suicidal thought and behaviors

    The Centers for Youth and Families offers a 12 hour course over the span of two days in Little Rock that is called Mental Health First Aid. It costs $150 and will be Jan. 24-25. Space is limited.

    You can register for the class by calling: 501.666.6833 or email: ParentCenter@cfyf.org.
