About the MHAT Course

Identify. Understand. Respond.

Mental Health First Aid is a skills-based training course that teaches participants to identify, understand and respond to mental health and substance use challenges.

This basic course on mental health and substance abuse conditions will give you the skills to notice and engage individuals experiencing these symptoms which cause suffering. Through engagement, you can offer understanding and invite them to expand their care team with resources that can help. You will receive a certificate of completion at the end of this course. This course is foundational and part of the training curriculum for NCServes Providers & Staff, Peer Supports, and Community Stakeholders.

In person and virtual options will be available and updated below. If you’d like to sign up a group feel free to send a message through the registration portal or email Alex O’Neill with the Governor’s Institute at alex@govinst.org.
