Event Overview

Mental Health First Aid logo

May is Mental Health Awareness month.
Join JFS for a free Mental Health First Aid training.

Individuals trained in Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) grow their knowledge of the signs, symptoms and risk factors of behavioral and mental health conditions and addictions. Peer-reviewed studies show that the program reduces the social distance created by negative attitudes and perceptions of individuals with mental illnesses.

To learn more about the Mental Health First Aid training please visit https://www.mentalhealthfirstaid.org/

What you will learn:

  • Grow your knowledge of signs, symptoms and risk factors of mental health conditions and addictions.
  • Identify multiple types of professional and self-help resources for individuals with a mental health condition or addiction.
  • Increase your confidence and likelihood to help an individual in distress.
  • Show increased mental wellness yourself.

The training will be a hybrid training that is done in two parts:

  • Part I: Approximately 2 hours in length webinar style. This can be done on your own time and does not have to be done in one session. The self-paced introduction must be complete prior to the instructor led session.
  • Part II: In person instructor led training will take place in the JFS Boardroom on Tuesday May 17, from 9:30-3:30. CE credits provided.

Sign up for MHFA training today. Upon completion of the training, participants receive a certificate valid for three years. 

Registration for this training will close on May 3, however if you can please register as soon as possible. We need a certain number of registrants to solidity the training.
