Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a groundbreaking public education program that helps the public identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. Mental Health First Aid USA is managed, operated, and disseminated by three national authorities — the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare, the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, and the Missouri Department of Mental Health.
MHFA is a 8-hour instructional course. Upon completion of the course, participants will be Mental Health First Aid Certificated. All instruction hours must be attended to become MHFA Certificated.
In our area, the training is supported by the Tulare County's Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) - Prevention and Early Intervention (PEI) Plan - Serious Mental Illness (SMI) Program. It is also supported by Kings County Behavioral Health's MHSA - PEI Plan. A fee is not being charged at this time for participation.
