Mental Health First Aid Training

NHBSR is partnering with The Richards Group in offering Mental Health First Aid Training

An enterprise-level approach to mental health awareness and training aims to improve early recognition and encourage help-seeking, enhancing utilization of timely, appropriate support, in hopes of limiting the impact mental health issues can have on the work environment. Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an evidence-based training program administered by the National Council for Mental Wellbeing that teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental health and substance use challenges.  

The training gives you the skills to reach out and provide initial help and support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use challenge or experiencing a crisis.

What It Covers:

  • Common signs and symptoms of mental health challenges.  
  • Common signs and symptoms of substance use challenges.  
  • How to interact with a person in crisis.
