Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an eight-hour, skills-based training developed by the National Council for Mental Wellbeing. It is widely considered “best in class,” having been recognized by the U.S. Senate. More than 2.6 million people have been trained in MHFA since its inception in 2001.
Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack, MHFA teaches people how to identify, understand, and respond to signs and symptoms of a mental health or substance use challenge in adults ages 18 and over. The evidence behind this program demonstrates that it builds mental health literacy, providing an action plan that teaches people to safely and responsibly identify and address a potential mental health or substance use challenge. No more fear or hesitation for how best to proceed.
NAA is pleased to have sponsored the following 12 NAA members to become certified to teach MHFA to others. They are a diverse group in terms of their professional experiences within the rental-housing industry, plus how they train – (a.) nation-wide ability to travel vs. regional or local travel only; (b.) in-person training vs. virtual training; (c.) training in pairs vs. training solo; and so forth. Their training fees may range accordingly.
