Mental Health First Aid
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. Philadelphia is one of the first metropolitan areas in the U.S. to implement MHFA on a large scale. DBHIDS offers the training free of charge for individuals who live, work, or study in the City of Philadelphia.
Once a certified aider, you will be able to recognize behavioral health signs and administer aid until appropriate treatment and supports are received, or until the crisis is resolved.
Our certification programs include:
- Adult Certification
- Youth Certification
- Public Safety Certification
- Veterans Certification
- Higher Education Certification
