Employee mental health and well-being are key to a healthy, productive workforce. Each year, one in five American adults experiences a mental health challenge that impacts them at home and at work.  

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) at Work is a unique opportunity that teaches you how to identify, understand, and respond to mental health and substance use challenges you may encounter in the workplace. 


In this interactive, skills-based training, you will learn how to: 

  • Describe the role of the Mental Health First Aider.  
  • Recognize the signs and symptoms of mental health challenges that may impact adults in the workplace.  
  • Evaluate the impact of early intervention on mental health challenges.  
  • Explain the five steps of the ALGEE Action Plan and apply the appropriate steps when a person shows early, worsening, and critical signs of a mental health challenge.  
  • Choose appropriate methods for self-care following the application of MHFA in a crisis or non-crisis situation. 


After completing the pre-work, training, and post-work, you will become certified as a Mental Health First Aider.
