Mental Health First Aid Certification Training Process 

An interactive and hands-on training designed to prepare religious leaders, educators, youth and community activists
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a groundbreaking public education program which introduces participants to risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems, builds an understanding of their impact, and overviews common treatments. MHFA is an 8-hour course, which uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to assess a mental health crisis; select interventions and provide initial help; and connect persons to professional, peer, social, and self-help care. The program also teaches about the risk factors and warning signs of specific illnesses like anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, and addictions. 

Course Format

Participants learn by getting involved with the material and relating what they learn to real-life applications with a cultural and faith-based perspective. Discussion topics, exercises, and other activities keep participants engaged in the course and give them an opportunity to practice helping skills.
One or two certified instructors lead each course and follow a national curriculum and teaching standards, while emphasizing hope for recovery. Classes consist of 30 participants or less within a safe and sensitive environment.
