In completing this course attendees can become an Accredited Mental Health First Aider. Complete an online assessment after the course to become accredited. WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR? The 12-hour Standard Mental Health First Aid course is for any interested adult. You will learn how to assist an adult who may be experiencing a mental health problem or mental health crisis until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves, using a practical, evidence-based action plan.
