Upcoming Virtual Mental Health First Aid Training
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an interactive course that presents an overview of mental illness and substance use disorders. It introduces participants to risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems, builds understanding of their impact, and explores common treatments. I have attached the flyer for all training dates in 2020.
MHFA introduces people to a 5-step action plan encompassing the skills and knowledge to help an individual in crisis and connect with appropriate professional, peer, social, and self-help resources.
The new MHFA virtual training includes a two-hour self-paced course that must be completed on a computer with internet access prior to the live session. After pre-work is complete, participants will be able to attend the live training from 9am-1pm on the date for which you enrolled. In order to provide adequate support to the attendees and maintain the efficacy and quality of the curriculum, each course will be led by two instructors and limited to 20 participants.
