LUBBOCK, Texas -

Knowing first-aid and how to bandage someone up is great when you need it, but there are somethings you just can't fix with a bandage like when someone is in crisis.

First responders, teachers and variety of other folks learn how to administer mental-health first-aid. It's a course put on by StarCare and it teaches participants how to help someone through a tough situation.

"Our goal is to really teach people steps that if you're seeing someone in distress or someone that needs help, these are some things you can do. So empower people to know how to help," Marle Antu, with StarCare Specialty Health System, said.

Classes are $25. Visit www.mentalhealthfirstaid.org. for available classes and how to register.
