 Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health 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. 

We continue to offer training throughout spring 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. Each session is limited to 30 participants. Training will be offered on:

  • Friday, May 6th 3-7pm AND Saturday, May 7th 9-1pm (for faculty and staff) in Graham Hall, 164
