 Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aid is a nationally recognized training program that teaches participants how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental health concerns and substance use. The training provides the skills needed to reach out and provide initial help and support while helping to identify other longer-term solutions if needed. 

Mental Health First Aid trainings are FREE for all faculty, staff, and students and come with a 3-year certification. 

As additional instructors are trained we will be scheduling sessions for fall term.  Training will be offered in two, four-hour time blocks over consecutive days. Participants will need to be available for both days and for the entirety of the training which will be held in person. In addition, there is approximately two hours of pre-coursework that will need to be completed online prior to your scheduled training.  To offer the best training experience, group sizes should be no fewer than ten and should not exceed thirty attendees. 

If you would like to request a specific training for your unit/department/student organization you can request a training here.
