Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. This 6-hour blended 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.

The course requires:

  • 2-hours of pre-work (that must be completed prior to attending the virtual class)
  • Attendance in a virtual class from 8:30 am – 3 pm  

Upon successful completion of the full course, participants will receive a certificate in Mental Health First Aid that is valid for 3 years.
