Mental Health First Aid Training

We have organized a Mental Health First Aid training specifically for NYC-DSA. To be part of the training you have to sign up here: https://nycdsa_mhfa.timetap.com/

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training teaches you how to identify signs of mental health distress, or substance use issues in your community. It will help you understand people's challenges or crises, and show you how to respond effectively.

The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) offers free Mental Health First Aid training to all New Yorkers, as part of the Thrive NYC initiative.

Research shows that MHFA training has a number of benefits.
