Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) for Public Safety
MHFA is an 8-hour evidence-based curriculum that can help officers better serve those in their community who may be experiencing a mental health or substance use crisis. MHFA was designed to help participants identify signs and symptoms of different mental health and substance use disorders so that they can connect those in crisis to appropriate treatment and community resources.
