This training is only for Veterans, their families and friends. Mental Health First Aid for Military Members, Veterans and their Families teaches people how to notice and respond to signs of mental health and addiction challenges with a specific focus on the cultural factors related to military life.

 

Mental Health First Aid is a national best-practice, evidenced-based certification course that is 8 hours in length and leads to a 3-year certification issued by the National Council on Behavioral Health.  By design it is intended to mirror the idea of regular first aid by empowering individuals with just enough information to respond and help guide someone with a mental health need to the right kind of help.
