Additional Information:

Course participants can begin the first portion of the training by signing up for a training class and completing their prework. Once completed, they can attend the in-person training class, where they will continue to learn skills to assist them. At the completion of the course, they will receive a certificate of participation.

All pre-work must be completed prior to attending the in-person session. 

The Mental Health First Aid training course is designed for bystanders who have little or no medical training but may be able to provide initial support to someone experiencing a mental health crisis. 

Learn how to respond with the Mental Health First Aid Action Plan (ALGEE): 
  Assess for risk of suicide or harm. 
  Listen nonjudgmentally. 
  Give reassurance and information. 
  Encourage appropriate professional help. 
  Encourage self-help and other support strategies.
