Choose the MHFA course that's right for you.
Just like physical First Aid and CPR, which offer special trainings like Child & Infant CPR and Wilderness First Aid, Mental Health First Aid has tailored the curriculum to meet a few specific needs. These modules supplement the primary adult or youth curriculum, and don’t leave out any material from the regular class. In choosing a Mental Health First Aid class, think about the people with whom you interact the most. Are they older adults, struggling with depression or dementia? Are they students in your high school class? Are they first responders, dealing with day-to-day crises in your community?
For most community members, the Adult MHFA class is the most appropriate. For parents and adults who interact with youth, Youth MHFA is the best option. For others, see our guide below.
