Free Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Training

Mental Health First Aid training is now available online! In the past, this popular training was available to California library staff in person. Since the pandemic, a number of organizations have converted this timely content to a virtual environment.

One of these organizations – H.E.A.L (Health Education for Advanced Living) is providing the MHFA training for free through an interactive virtual format that includes a 2 hour self-paced session followed by a virtual live 4 hour session and culminating in your MHFA certification. Each session can handle up to 25 participants, and registration is through the following H.E.A.L Eventbrite links:

Wednesday, February 17, 9:00 am – 1:30 pm
Saturday, February 27, 6:00 am – 10:30 am
