Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aid Certification

Have you ever observed a person in crisis and wanted to help but didn’t know how?

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) will give you the skills you need. MHFA is a fun, interactive 8-hour certification course taught by our own MHFA certified trainers, Dan Osborne and Amy Jensen.

You don’t need any special background or education to attend training, just an interest in learning more about mental health and how you can help others.

Like CPR, Mental Health First Aid prepares participants to interact with a person in crisis and connect the person with help. First Aiders do not diagnose or provide counseling or therapy. They are given concrete tools and answers to common questions, like “What do I do?” and “Where can someone find help?”

Upcoming Mental Health First Aid Training scheduled on May 17th from 12p-4p and May 18th from 12p-4p.  You must attend both days of this training.  The training will be located at the Middletown Police Department in the Community Room.  This training provides a fun and interactive way to learn more about mental health.  If you are interested in attending, please contact Sheryl Apuzzo at sapuzzo@gileadcs.org or 860-343-5300 ext. 3442 to sign-up and discuss the fee.
