  • Common signs and symptoms of substance use.
  • How to interact with a person in crisis.
  • How to connect the person with help.

The MHFA National Council for Behavioral Health worked hard to get this training ready to go Virtually.  With that being said, there are some small kinks that they are working on so instructors can enter participants for the training in order to complete the self-paced 2-hour pre-course work.  We want to give you plenty of time and not feel rushed to complete this prior to the Virtual training.  We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause.
