What is Mental Health First Aid?
MHFA is an interactive course that gives people the skills to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. The evidence behind the program demonstrates that it builds mental health literacy and helps the public identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness. Participants are introduced to risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems, gain and understanding of their impact and explore common interventions and treatments.
Who should attend Mental Health First Aid:
MHFA is intended for all people and organizations that make up the fabric of a community and can benefit anyone interested in learning more about mental health problems, including depression, anxiety, psychosis and substance use.
Participants must complete 2 hours of pre-work using a computer with an internet connection prior to the live session. After this pre-work is complete, participants will be able to attend the live training on zoom from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. on the date and location you enrolled for.
