Mental Health First Aid

Description Image

Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour course that teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. The training gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial help and support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem or experiencing a crisis.

Topics covered include:

  • Depression and mood disorders
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Trauma
  • Psychosis
  • Substance Use disorders

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 required to move to a future course session.


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.
