Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an evidence-based training that teaches how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental health and/or substance use concerns. This training provides the skills needed to reach out and support someone with behavioral health challenges. MHFA takes the fear and hesitation out of starting conversations around mental health and intervening when help is needed.

Through this interactive training, attendees will learn about common concerns by better understanding signs, symptoms and risk factors. By focusing on real-life scenarios, participants will develop, and practice, critical skills non-crisis and crisis situations.

MHFA is offered to adult participants and provided virtually. Trained participant certifications are valid for three years from the effective training date.
