Mental Health First Aid

logo-1We think of First Aid as something administered to people in need of physical health intervention. What about people who need immediate assistance for their mental health?

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an eight-hour course that teaches the skills needed to identify, understand, and respond to signs of behavioral health challenges or crises.
