Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Classes

Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. This 8-hour 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 appropriate care.

“Like CPR, one person in every family should be trained in Mental Health First Aid. This is Overflow Foundation’s goal.”

Terry Lee, Founder and Executive Director
