Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an eight-hour course, taught over 2 days, that teaches you how to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. The training helps you identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders.
A three-year certification in MHFA is available upon completion of the 2-day course. You must attend both days to obtain the MHFA certification. Our nationally certified trainers teach a five-step action plan that will help you assess a situation, implement appropriate interventions, and help the person connect with professional care.
*PLEASE NOTE THE MHFA COURSE IS SCHEDULED FOR TWO CONSECUTIVE DAYS WHICH YOU MUST ATTEND
