Mental Health First Aid

Imagine you could help someone with a mental health or substance use problem, even save a life!

Group of Diverse People

Perhaps you’ve noticed someone you know or care for is suffering or acting differently than they usually do… Do you have the tools to check in with them or assess if they are at risk for harm or suicide?  Would you have resources at the ready to encourage them to get the help they need?

Helping a person who is in mental health or substance use distress can be scary if we don’t know what to do. This course teaches you how to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. The training helps you identify, understand, and respond to signs of addictions and mental illnesses.

Mental Health First Aid is taught by a certified instructor and is sponsored by the National Council on Behavioral Health.
