Mental Health First Aid
Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders.

What is covered:
- Common signs and symptoms of mental illness
- Common signs and symptoms of substance use
- How to interact with a person in crisis
- How to connect the person with help

Currently, all courses are held virtually. Participants will complete a 2-hour, self-paced course, and then participate in a live, Instructor-led training using Zoom. You must attend the full course to receive a certificate of completion. The self-paced course will be sent to participants roughly two weeks prior to the virtual course. The pre-course training must be completed at least 24 hours before your live, virtual course. If you do not complete the pre-course training, you will be unable to attend the virtual course
All transfer and cancelation requests must be made at least 48 hours in advance of the virtual course. A refund cannot be issued if the online pre-course training has been opened.
We require five participants to hold a class. If we do not have five people enrolled two weeks prior to class, the course will be canceled.
The cost of this course is subsidized by a generous donation from the Providence Health Care Foundation. Scholarships are available upon request.
