Mental Health First Aid Training Registration

Please confirm that you have the time, technology and environment required for participation

Mental Health and substance use can often be viewed as somber, serious, or “heavy” topics. The program itself is designed to give appropriate weight to the severity of certain mental illnesses and addiction disorders while emphasizing hope for recovery and presenting the material in a relaxed and comfortable environment for course participants.  Course instructors will maintain a “virtual hallway” –and a breakout room, where participants can “step out of the training” if necessary.  One of the instructors will be available there to offer support. If you need to leave the training because you are upset or unsettled by the discussion or the material, we will follow up with you by phone. In the unlikely event that we cannot reach you, we will contact your personal support to offer additional resources.

Thank you for your interest in Mental Health First Aid!  We will provide you with “next steps” for registration for the

course.

Thank you! Your submission has been received!

Mental Health First Aid Winter/Spring 2022 Trainings

What to expect:
Your instructors will present the material in a relaxed and comfortable environment for course participants in your own space!  We maintain a "virtual hallway," breakout rooms for all classes where participants can participate fully in the training for group activities, etc. just as in LIVE in-person trainings.  You will need to complete a 2 hour self-paced portion of the curriculum prior to the instructor led portion.  You will then need to complete a 5.5 hour LIVE instructor led portion of the curriculum via ZOOM.

What’s Exciting:             
Your certified instructors have learned to utilize all of the Zoom tools, so we will have breakout rooms for small-group discussions, whiteboards for drawing, a hallway for private talk, chats for sharing thoughts and questions! Participants will receive a Process Workbook to use throughout the training.  The virtual training is based on new curricula that includes expanded content on trauma, addiction and self-care.  The Youth MHFA will include new content applicable for adults working with elementary-age children, including content from Child Mind Institute and the impact of social media, trauma and bullying. The content is gender neutral and culturally relevant!

NECESSARY TECHNOLOGY:
·Internet access with stable wi-fi or network connection
·Laptop, desktop or tablet with video and audio-enabled Zoom
·Interruption-free zone
·Technical assistance

**Due to changing COVID restrictions we may need to alter the format of the training based on state, local or venue restriction. Should we need to make a change, we will notify participants and hold the date and time and provide virtual training.

As we continue to follow guidelines to stop the spread of COVID-19, these options provide people with the tools to support themselves and their communities. The Mental Health First Aid action plan equips family, friends, and neighbors to help one another during these difficult times

MHFA trainings (virtual, hybrid and In Person) are ONLY for interested  individuals from the SE Counties of Pennsylvania and priority registration is given to individuals who live, work or support someone in Montgomery County, PA.  These trainings are sponsored by Montgomery County Office of Behavioral Health.
