Mental Health First Aid Training

December 15, 2021

Research shows us that 1 in 5 university students is affected with anxiety or depression.  As an institution, Ball State is offering you an opportunity to participate in a Mental Health First Aid course to help you identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance abuse disorders.  This training will provide you with helpful skills and resources to better serve our students who may be experiencing mental health challenges.  

Adult Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) program is an evidenced-based education and prevention tool designed to increase mental health literacy, reduce stigma and increase confidence to support someone who is experiencing a crisis or non-crisis situation.  Similar to traditional First Aid or CPR, Mental Health First Aid is help provided to a person developing a mental health problem, experiencing a crisis until professional treatment is obtained, or the crisis resolves.  

The course requires 

  • 2-hours of pre-work (that must be completed prior to attending the virtual class)
  • Attendance in a virtual class from 8:30 am – 3 pm  

Upon successful completion of the full course, participants will receive a certificate in Mental Health First Aid.
