Mental Health First Aid

Training You to Help Others

MHFA is an evidence-based program that takes the fear and hesitation out of starting conversations about mental health and substance use problems by providing people with an action plan to safely and responsibly identify and address a potential mental illness or substance use disorder. Given the current pandemic and social unrest, building community capacity to address mental health needs has never been more critical.
