About the Event :

Mental Health First Aid is now available as a 7 hour online training ( 2 hours of self-study and 5 hours of a online classroom VIA ZOOM) to prepare you to assist people you encounter who may be experiencing a mental health or substance use issue. The training teaches the most common mental health conditions, risk factors, suicide prevention, and a simple 5-step strategy to offer assistance. You will receive a link for the pre-course work & ZOOM MEETING from Mental Health First Aid.org once registered.

YOU MUST COMPLETE THE PRE-COURSE WORK 24 HOURS PRIOR TO THE START OF THE CLASS. YOU MUST ATTEND THE ENTIRE PROGRAM TO RECEIVE CERTIFICATION.

This class is for adults 18 years or older to helping other adults. There is a separate class to assist youth.

Mental Health First Aid has been taught to more than 2 million people worldwide and found to be effective at reducing mental health stigma, and in equipping people to identify issues and offer help.

Each class is limited in size to facilitate learning. If you register, please attend, or if plans change, release your tickets as soon as possible, so that someone else can participate.
