Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) 

Curt Emanuel and Kelly Heckaman will be co-teaching a virtual offering of Mental Health First Aid (Adult) on November 17. This course will include approximately two hours of online learning for participants to complete at their own pace, as well as six hours of live instruction led by Purdue Extension staff over Zoom. Participants must complete the online self-paced learning at least 48 hours BEFORE attending the live instruction. The live instruction for this course will be held from 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM EST, 8:00 AM until 2:00 PM CST.

Each course requires a minimum of 10 participants and costs $20 per person. Preregistration is required for the newly updated MHFA courses which include a self-paced online portion as well as an instructor-led training portion via Zoom.

The registration deadline is November 3, 2020, and advance registration is REQUIRED to attend. Like CPR, MHFA helps participants feel confident providing assistance and support to someone in distress.
