Mental Health First Aid

You must be staff, faculty, or current student at Morgan State University to attend this training.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an international public awareness curriculum that works to destigmatize conversations around mental health while providing a tangible action plan for participants 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.

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 class has grant funded seats available and is sponsored by the Maryland Department of Health Behavioral Health Administration which helps to provide Mental Health First Aid programming across the state!

Participants receive an electronic Mental Health First Aid manual and Mental Health First Aid Certification for 3 years upon completion of course requirements.

Please note: This is a virtual class. This class requires:

  • 2-hours of online, self-paced prework to be completed before class. Emails with prework information will arrive approximately two weeks before the date of the class.
