Mental Health First Aid for Veterans, Service Members, & Families
What is MHFA?
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a workshop designed for any community member to learn how to help others in distress. MHFA provides service members, veterans, their families, & those serving them with the skills to recognize peer distress, provide support, & refer individuals to mental health services when needed.
What Does MHFA Include? The full-day workshop includes:
- A full-day, interactive workshop: This FREE workshop features U.S. veteran instructors, interactive activities, role-play demonstrations, & videos to educate participants in recognizing signs of poor mental health & supporting one another.
- A paper-back MHFA manual: All participants receive a free copy of the Mental Health First Aid manual which they can use to remember core content & crisis de-escalation steps to help those in distress in their communities.
- Child-care per-diems: Registrants are eligible to receive 1 child-care per-diem per family, providing $15 per hour ($120 for those who attend the full-day training). The per diem will be issued AFTER the training at a later date via check.
