Within a week of the training I used the knowledge and skills I learned to help a family member in distress. I was able to provide much better support at a critical time and I felt knowledgeable, empowered and more calm. I am so grateful!

People should get MHFA certified because so many people struggle with mental health issues, often in silence until they reach a breaking point. You never know when someone you love or a stranger on the street could need your help; and just a few right words and a couple of well-placed phone calls really can save lives.


I initially took the MFHA training because I work in an urban environment were I regularly came into contact with people in crisis, and I was hoping to learn tools and skills that would help me better navigate situations that sometimes arose. This was definitely the case. Additionally, I found that the training also prepared me to help people in my own life, which was an added bonus.

As I listened to the training I really started to look at myself and realized that there are certain areas in my life that have been filled with past trauma that I have completely ignored. I think from this training I've learned that it's important for me to not only show compassion on people but also learn to have compassion in myself as well.
