Mental Health First Aid is an evidence-based course that teaches participants how to recognize when someone might be experiencing a mental health challenge and how to reach out to offer help and find other resources. By raising awareness and understanding of these disorders we can reduce the stigma often associated with seeking resources and care. The virtual course format includes:

  • approximately two hours of self-paced online learning, and
  • six hours of live instruction led by Purdue Extension staff over Zoom.

Participants must attend and participate in all course content and activities in order to receive their certification. (Self-paced section must be completed at least 48 hours prior to your “live” class date.) The registration deadline is approximately two weeks in advance of your chosen class date, and advance registration is required. If you have questions about the Adult Mental Health First Aid course content or schedule, please contact Purdue Extension by e-mail at

Purdue University is an equal opportunity/equal access/affirmative action university. If you require special accommodations to attend this event, please contact Tessa Garrow, Purdue Extension, at 765-496-6849 or by e-mail at at least 2 weeks prior to your preferred course date.
