Adult MHFA is specifically designed for adults assisting other adults  and is a great supplemental training for public service personnel, human resources, behavioral health, coaches, other direct service-related positions, and anyone interested in expanding mental health education to the greater Maryland community.   

This international public awareness curriculum works to destigmatize conversations around mental health while providing a tangible action plan for adults to address crisis and non-crisis mental health situations – much like CPR/first aid supports physical health situations. MHFA is proven to increase the likelihood of bystander ‘helping’ behaviors, but also increases the learners own mental health literacy. Win-win!  

Instructor training is a train-the-trainer model, teaching candidates how to deliver a Mental Health First Aid class in their own community or workplace. If you are already an instructor, you can consider dual certification to teach both the adult and youth courses. 

MHFA Instructor Training is valued at $2,200 across the country and is available to Maryland residents in the identified geographic locations at no cost! Please note that there is an ongoing cost to deliver MHFA training, including the cost of required training materials and program supplies, that are not covered under this grant. Grant funding solely covers the cost of the Instructor Training. 

Additional details regarding certification and training requirements are available on the Registration page. If you have questions about the curriculum or training program, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page. Still have questions? Email
