Training in Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance use related crisis. In the Mental Health First Aid course, you learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations and where to turn for help. Participation in this course provides a certificate of completion for 8 hours of training. This course is designed for adults assisting other adults.
The course will be offered in two parts. The first part is offered online in a self-study format, takes about 2 hours, and needs to be completed before the live session. The second part will be offered live and virtually via a Zoom connection. This session will be held September 24th from 9am-3pm. You will receive the link for the self-paced session and Zoom info for the live session after you have registered.
