Mental Health First Aid (MHFA)
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a groundbreaking, internationally recognized evidence-based training program committed to empowering individuals to identify, understand and respond to those in mental health and substance abuse crisis.
Similar to how a person learns “first aid” to help those in a medical crisis, MHFA teaches participants how to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illness and substance use disorders. This training provides the skills needed to initially support someone who may be experiencing a crisis or developing a mental health or substance use problem. MHFA takes the fear and hesitation out of starting conversations about mental health and substance use problems by improving understanding and providing an action plan to safely identify and address potential disorders.

Friday, June 2nd: 8:30am-5:00pm (in-person at Dixon/Lafayette location)
