Mental Health First Aid
From the National Council for Mental Wellbeing
Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour course that teaches adults how to help someone experiencing a mental health concern, addiction challenge, or crisis. By recognizing signs of mental health distress and knowing how to communicate with individuals experiencing these scary moments, we can be part of an immensely impactful early intervention effort. Identifying problems early increases the chances people get the help they need as soon as possible.
Participants must complete the self-paced pre-work 48 hours prior to attending the virtual instructor-led session.
The pre-work will be assigned via MHFA Connect when participants are enrolled.
Participants who do not complete the pre-work will not be admitted to the in-person session.
Please download the Participant Processing Guide and Self-care Action Plan at the start of the training.
