Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aid is a program that teaches participants how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness and substance use disorders. The program gives participants the skills and confidence to provide initial support to those who are experiencing a crisis in their community.

Extension provides Youth, Adult, and teen Mental Health First Aid. Sign up for one of our current classes. Or request a training (adults or youth).
