Mental Health First Aid
Learn How to Respond to a Mental Health Crisis
Mental Health First Aid is a groundbreaking public education program that helps the public identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness and substance abuse disorders. It is a 12-hour interactive course that prepares people to recognize when someone is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a crisis and to help that person until professional treatment is received or the crisis is resolved.
Mental Health First Aid is designed to benefit a variety of key professionals including employers and business leaders, faith communities, school personnel and educators, police and corrections officers, nursing home staff, state policy makers, volunteers, young people, and the general public.
The Mental Health Center of Denver has four Mental Health First Aid certified instructors on staff and is bringing this important training to the community. Find a Mental Health First Aid course in your area.
