Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a training designed to help advocates better understand mental health issues and how to respond appropriately. Those who take the course to certify as Mental Health First Aiders will learn a five-step action plan encompassing the skills, resources and knowledge to help an individual in crisis connect with appropriate professional, peer, social and self-help care. Training topics include mental health/substance use disorders, risk factors and warning signs of mental health concerns, building an understanding of their impact, and common treatment modalities.
Before registering for this training please note that there is a prerequisite self-study that must be completed in order to participate in this training. Once you register, your registration information will be submitted to our trainer to create your MHFA class. From there, you will receive an email from MHFA with instructions to create an account to access all virtual MHFA materials and the prerequisite self-study materials, which take about two hours to complete. The self-study must be completed by noon on July 2nd to be allowed to participate in the virtual live event on July 7th. If you have not completed the self-study by noon on July 2nd, you will be removed from our registration. If you complete the self-study on time, you will then receive a link through the MHFA system to the virtual live ZOOM event on July 7th.
