Mental Health First Aid training (MHFA) is a course designed for individuals interested in learning how to properly support those showing early or worsening signs of a mental health challenge. MHFA training covers anxiety disorders, depression, panic attacks, psychotic disorders, and substance use disorders.

CETLSS will be offering sessions in person as well as virtually throughout 2023. Do you have a group of 5+? Does your group want to attend a session together instead of individually? Go to the CETLSS Website, Workshops & Programs, and Mental Health First Aid to complete our MHFA Group Registration form, and we will be in contact with you to schedule a session! We are happy to come to your department or host a group training within the CETLSS suite.
