Mental Health First Aid Certification Trainings
MHFA is offered FREE of charge to participants and is funded by a federal grant awarded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
Virtual MHFA - a combination of a 2 hour self-paced online module and a Zoom classroom format.
Each session requires pre-work to be completed before attending the 6-hour Zoom course. The 2-hour module and short tutorial are pre-requisite to attend the Zoom classroom.
Once you register for a class, you will be given a log-in to the Learning Management System where you will have access to the training.
