Mental Heath First Aid (MHFA)

Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an evidence-based training program that empowers individuals to identify, understand, and respond to others who might experience a mental health or substance abuse crisis. Mental Health First Aid promotes and enhances recovery by cultivating empathy, understanding, and the ability to prevent or intervene in the event of a mental health emergency. This work fosters positive community dialogue and saves lives.

2 Mental Health First Aid (adult curriculum) courses are being offered in Park County:
  • Thursday, April 13th, 8:00a – 5:00p, at Platte Canyon Fire on Crow Hill in Bailey
  • Wednesday, May 24th , 8:00a – 5:00p, at Northwest Fire in Fairplay
The classes, offered free of charge, are sponsored by the Park County Department of Public Health through a grant from the CO Department of Public Health and Environment. Lunch will be provided and all class participants will receive a $10 Starbucks gift card upon completion of the class. Space is limited, so register early at Mental Health First Aid Colorado.

A Youth Mental Health First Aid Class will be scheduled in June. Pass this information on to your co-workers, family, and friends.
