Mental Health First Aid

This class is taught through online pre-work and virtual classroom. The pre-work will take about 2 hours and must be completed before the live session.

Resources provided will focus on Northwest Washington.

Join the movement.

Sometimes first aid isn’t a bandage, or CPR, or calling 911. Sometimes first aid is YOU.

A person you know could be experiencing a mental health or substance use problem. Learn an action plan to help.

You are more likely to encounter someone in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Learn how to help a friend, family member, coworker or neighbor in need. Get trained in Mental Health First Aid.

Take a course. Save a life. Strengthen your community.
