Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Training

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training is an eight hour course that provides certification and teaches attendees how to help someone who is experiencing the early warning signs of mental illness and substance use problems, as well as how to intervene in crisis situations such as risk of suicide or overdose. MHFA is an international public education program similar to CPR and First Aid that helps members of the public identify, understand, and connect individuals to professional help. This course is being offered by Recovery Resources, a leading provider in Northeast Ohio helping people triumph over mental illness, alcoholism, as well as drug and other addictions.

This training is being sponsored by the Dean of Students Offices and the department of Human Resources. We want to encourage employees who have significant contact with students to consider signing up for this course. Enrollment is limited to 30 individuals.
