Under national guidelines, only individuals over the age of 18 can attend this training.

In this FREE educational seminar, learn more about: Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack-even if you have no clinical training-Mental Health First Aid allows you to assist someone experiencing a mental health-related crisis. In the course, you learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help. After attending all 7.5 hours, you will be a certified Mental Health First Aider.

Over the last few months, in reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Council for Behavioral Health, who oversees Mental Health First Aid programming, put together a virtual Mental Health First Aid class for both the youth and adult models.

This class will be taking place on Zoom.

Mental Health First Aid is typically taught in person and is very interactive and supportive. We ask that you be patient with us as we transition to teach this course virtually. Below is a checklist of what is needed to fully participate in the course, please check off to ensure you have all equipment needed:
