Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an 8-hour course that teaches you how to help someone who may be experiencing a mental health or substance use disorders. The training helps you identify, understand and respond to signs of addictions and mental illnesses. Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack, MHFA helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis.


In the MHFA 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. MHFA courses are offered by certified local instructors.
