Event Details

Mental Health First Aid is an eight-hour introductory course intended for any adult in the community, except experienced mental health providers. This program is excellent for professionals who interact with large numbers of people, school and college leadership, faith communities, and those in non-professional roles, such as friends and family or any person interested in learning more about individuals with mental illness or addiction.

The certification program introduces participants to risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems, builds understanding of their impact, and overviews common treatments. The course teaches participants a five-step action plan to assess a situation, select and implement interventions, and secure appropriate care for the individual.

The registration fee is $55, which includes the course and all training materials, and must be paid at the time of registration. Registration and payment are required by Monday, June 15th. Please note you must be 18 or over to participate. Also, the fee does not cover the cost of lunch, so you are welcome to bring your own or plan to order delivery. Class size is limited to 16 people, so please register soon to reserve your spot. Registrants will be advised by Tuesday, June 16th should the class need to be postponed. The MHFA course has been pre-approved by NCSAPPS for 8 training hours, including 6 general skill building and 2 substance abuse specific.  The class counts towards Peer Support Specialist credit hours.
