Mental Health First Aid is an evidence- and skills-based training that teaches people how to identify, understand and respond to signs and symptoms of a mental health or substance use challenge in adults ages 18 and over. Geared through the lens of higher education, this course will help participants to better understand the unique challenges college-aged individuals may face, help to increase participants’ mental health literacy, and provide an action plan of how to provide support safely and responsibly to others. Similar to CPR-First Aid, this training will provide participants with a certification as a Mental Health First Aider for three years from the date of attendance. Join the more than 2.9M Mental Health First Aiders nationwide who have learned more about mental health and how to #bethedifference!
This certification course will be offered as a pre-conference session leading up to the Gap Year Association’s 2023 Gap Year Conference. Your registration will include lunch provided by Market on Front, a popular Missoula deli and market. Attendance at the Gap Year Conference is not required to attend this training. The Mental Health First Aid Training is open to the public. Those working in higher education or experiential education fields for young adults are encouraged to attend.
