Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an evidenced-based public education program that teaches people the key skills needed to help someone with a mental health problem or crisis. Mental Health First Aid focuses on the skills that can be used until professional help is obtained. Upon completion of this 8 hour training program, participants receive a Mental Health First Aid Certificate.

Mental Health First Aid training teaches participants to identify individuals who may need help for a mental illness, effectively communicate with them and guide them to appropriate professional help. The goal of this training is to make responding to a mental health crisis as common as utilizing CPR in a cardiac emergency.
