Adult Mental Health First Aid is an innovative, 8-hour course designed to give you the tools to recognize a range of mental health problems and the skills and confidence to help someone in a mental health crisis. The program offers a concrete action plan to help someone in crisis connect with appropriate professional, peer and self-help care.

Youth Mental Health First Aid is designed for adults who regularly interact with young people (ages 12-18). The course introduces the unique risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems in adolescents and builds an understanding of the importance of early intervention.

Mental Health First Aid for Veterans discusses military culture and its relevance to mental health, reviews specific risk factors faced by many service members and their families (such as trauma, stress and separation) and helps break down the stigma associated with mental health problems. It provides a concrete action plan designed specifically for service members, their families and those who support them and helps Veterans connect to resources available in their community.

These classes are offered to the community FREE of charge!
