Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training teaches you how to identify signs of mental health distress, or substance use issues in your community. It will help you understand people's challenges or crises, and show you how to respond effectively.

The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) offers free Mental Health First Aid training to all New Yorkers, as part of the Thrive NYC initiative.

Research shows that MHFA training has a number of benefits.

  • Improved ability to recognize behavioral health challenges

  • Greater confidence in one's ability to help

  • Decreased negative attitudes toward behavioral health challenges

MHFA courses are offered on a regular basis at DOHMH. They are tailored for working with either Adults or Youth. On February 9th, 2019, Mastermind Connect members will have the opportunity to get certified. Please register here (MC Members only. Limited Space).
