Mental Health First Aid
Mental Health First Aid is an evidence-based, certificate course that teaches participants how to respond to signs of mental health and substance use challenges. The training teaches skills needed to reach out and provide initial help and support to someone who may be developing a mental health problem or experiencing a crisis. Founded in Australia in 2000, Mental Health First Aid is managed in the U.S. by the National Council for Behavioral Health.
Participants will complete a two-step process, comprised of a 2-hour self-paced online class, followed by a 6.5-hour, Instructor-led class on Zoom. The virtual training uses the newly revised curriculum with expanded content on trauma, addiction and self-care.
