Mental Health First Aid for Higher Education teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. This training — which focuses on the unique experiences and needs of college students — gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem and help connect them to the appropriate care.
The Office of Student Support regularly provides staff, students, and faculty with annual opportunities to take part in Mental Health First Aid training. For more information about the training or to register click here
