Community Training

Sometimes First Aid isn’t a bandage, CPR,  or calling 9-1-1. Sometimes First Aid is you.

The Mental Health Association offers a number of opportunities for community education around mental health and wellness, suicide awareness and prevention, and a variety of early childhood topics.

Mental Health First Aid


An 8-hour, evidence based training course presented by certified Mental Health First Aid USA instructors. It teaches how to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis.

ASIST


A practical, two-day training for those who want to learn how to respond to the immediate risk of suicide.
 

safeTalk


A half-day training program designed to help people be suicide alert.

Participants will learn to:

  • Recognize someone with suicidal thoughts
  • Move beyond tendencies to miss, dismiss, or avoid the topic of suicide
  • Link people with community resources
     

Early Childhood


Over 200 classes offered each year on topics including child development, health and safety, and curriculum.  


Sometimes the best first aid is you!
