Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness and substance use disorders. This training gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem and help connect them to the appropriate care.
First Aiders will complete a 2-hour, self-paced online class, and then participate in a 6-hour, Instructor-led Zoom Meeting.
Trainings are offered through the Wisconsin Rural Opioid and Stimulant Engagement (WiROSE),funded by SAMHSA to address opioid and stimulant prevention, intervention, and recovery. WiROSEis a project of the Extension Health and Well-being Institute.
