Mental Health First Aid is a course that teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. The training gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial help and support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem or experiencing a crisis.
Mental Health First Aid of Northern Kentucky and Southwest Ohio is offering free virtual Mental Health First Aid classes through an OhioMAS grant. Individuals who are associated with a faith-based organization or those who serve minorities, the elderly or youth aged 12-21 are eligible to sign up. In order to participate in the training, you must be attached to a registered group of 15-30 trainees and complete around two hours of MHA-assigned, self-directed work prior to the start of group training.
