Mental Health First Aid Individual Sign Up

Mental Health First Aid is a course that teaches you how to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. The training helps you identify, understand, and respond to signs of addictions and mental illnesses.

Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis.

 

Mental Health First Aid is a skills-based training course that teaches participants about mental health and substance-use issues. This training is available in English and Spanish.

 

The participants are instructed by Coaching Salud Holística instructors and certified through the National Council for Mental Wellbeing. At the end of the course, participants will receive a certification that is valid all through the United States for 3 years before renewal is requested.

 

Adult Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) courses teach adult learners how to assist fellow adults, while Youth MHFA courses teach adult learners how to assist adolescents between the ages of 12 and 18. These courses are available completely in-person through an Instructor-led training, partially in-person (called Blended In-person) or completely virtually (called Blended Virtual).
 

This sign up is for individuals looking to take the training on their own. We provide organizational trainings and are able to provide this training for cohorts up to 30 at a time. To learn more about organizational trainings see below.
