Mental Health First Aid Training

Identify. Understand. Respond.

Mental Health First Aid (“MHFA”) is a public education program that introduces participants to risk factors and warning signs of mental illnesses and substance use challenges, builds understanding of their impact, and overviews common supports. The vision is for MHFA to become as common as CPR and First Aid training. Furthermore, the goal of this training program is to provide individuals with the skills to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis through a 5-step action plan. This session will help you identify where to turn for help and where to find the resources to help those in need.
