Mental Health Trainings Spring 2022

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. This training — which focuses on the unique experiences and needs of college students — gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem and help connect them to the appropriate care and resources. Open to students, faculty, and staff members. There are two learning options:

VIRTUAL. First Aiders will complete a 2-hour, self-paced online course, and then participate in a 7-hour, Instructor-led video conference.

BLENDED LEARNING. After completing a 2-hour, self-paced online course, First Aiders will participate in a 7-hour, in-person, Instructor-led class.
