1 in 25 Americans have serious functional impairment due to mental illness.

1 in 5 children ages 13-18 are currently or have been diagnosed with a debilitating mental health disorder.


This course helps anyone who wants to learn how to provide initial help to someone who may be experiencing symptoms of a mental illness or crisis. The course gives people tools to help friends, family members, colleagues, or others in their community. Every session we have sponsored has received rave reviews. The city of Philadelphia has a goal of training a large population of the city in Mental Health First Aid, and New York City has also adopted this program to train a large population there as well. Attend this class offered at no charge (estimated cost avoidance: $92 pp) and learn some ways you can help others and get them the help they need. This class is beneficial for anyone who lives with, works with, or interacts with people. Everyone will benefit.

Please register by September 16, 2019.

Please note that this session is two half days, 9 AM - 1 PM. Attendees must attend both days to receive credit for the course. If you are unable to attend both days, please plan to attend the next full day session, planned for December 10, 2019.
