Mental Health First Aid
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an 8-hour course that teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. The training gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial help and support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem or experiencing a crisis. As a certified Mental Health First Aider, you will know how to implement the 5-Step MHFA Action Plan.
