mental Health First Aid (Live, Online Course)

When someone’s in distress, a quick and compassionate response is just as important for mental health as it is physical health.  Mental Health First Aid  is evidence-based training that teaches participants how to recognize the signs and symptoms of a mental health crisis and help someone who may be experiencing one.

Grounded in messages of hope and recovery, this program helps break down the misinformation surrounding mental health and helps trainees understand how they can play a role in the “first response” to mental health issues. Trainees are taught how to use a five-step action plan (ALGEE) to help someone experiencing a mental health issue, and connect them to the care and resources they need to recover.

NOTE: Employees may use available educational assistance funds to pay for this program.


Session dates for 2024 will be released as soon as they are confirmed.
