What is Mental Health First Aid Training?

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is the support provided to a person who may be experiencing a decline in their mental well-being or a mental health crisis.

Course participants will learn how to recognize signs that a person may be experiencing a decline in their mental well-being or a mental health crisis and encourage that person to:

  • Talk about declines in their mental well-being

  • Discuss professional and other supports that could help with recovery to improved mental well-being

  • Reach out to these supports

  • Assist in a mental health or substance use crisis

  • Use MHFA actions to maintain one’s own mental well-being

The 8-hour course opens with a self-directed module that focuses on the information and strategies that participants will discuss and practice throughout the virtual classroom modules.


Course participants are required to complete the self-directed module a minimum of 24 hours before the virtual classroom sessions. It takes approximately 2 hours to complete.
