Be a First Responder for Your Community’s Mental Health.
Mental Health First Aid Colorado is a statewide, public education program committed to empowering individuals to identify, understand and respond to those in mental health and substance abuse crises.
Depression. Anxiety. Substance abuse. Eating disorders. These are but a few of the mental health challenges people in Colorado struggle with every day. In fact, one out of four people you meet has struggled with a mental health problem at some point. But there is hope. And it is you.
Through this certification course, you'll become a certified Mental Health First Aider. You will learn how to respond to someone with a mental health challenge. You'll learn the signs, evidence-based actions and how to connect those in crisis to support systems that can help them recover.
Mental Health First Aid is for everyone. The course has been tested, proven, and tailored to meet a range of unique perspectives and experiences.
Participants will receive a certificate that they completed the training along with a workbook to take home.
Cost: $25 nominal fee to cover the cost of lunch and supplies.
Lunch and coffee will be provided.
