Requesting Mental Health First Aid training
This form is for departments and student groups to request a Mental Health First Aid training for their group. Please note that open trainings are also scheduled throughout the year, so if your group is small, you may be directed to join one of those instead. To learn more, visit

Mental Health First Aid is an 8­-hour national certification course that is designed to teach the layperson the skills to recognize the signs of a mental health or substance use disorder crisis, identify community resources, and link individuals in need of treatment and support to the proper resources.

The course consists of a 1.5-hour self-paced introduction course online, followed by a 6-hour virtual skills session with live Mental Health First Aid instructors. Participants will learn a 5­-step action plan and practice applying it throughout the skills section of the course.

Maryland's Mental Health First Aid organization charges $119, but we are offering this course for $28.95 per person, which covers the cost of the seat in the Learning Management System and resource materials for participants to refer back to.
