Learn Mental Health First Aid

Learn to recognize the signs of mental health problems and crises, and develop the skills to actively help people experiencing these problems: Get trained in Mental Health First Aid (MHFA), an internationally recognized interactive program that has trained more than 100,000 people nationwide since its launch in 2009.

As an MHFA training program participant, you will receive a comprehensive introduction to risk factors and warning signs to a spectrum of mental health problems and crises, notably depression, anxiety, substance misuse, and psychosis. You will also learn and practice a five-step action plan for situations such as helping someone through a panic attack, engaging wit​h someone who may be suicidal, or assisting an individual who has overdosed, as well as connecting that person with appropriate professional, peer, social and self-help care.
