The Cambridge Health Alliance is able to generously offer it free to members of our community as a result of federal funding from SAMHSA. Our trainings have limited capacity and a large waiting list. If you need to reschedule or cancel we request that you communicate in advance or we may not be able to accommodate your enrollment in a future course.
Registration preference is given for those in the Cambridge Health Alliance’s service areas including Cambridge, Somerville, Everett, Malden, Medford, Revere, Somerville, and Winthrop. Registration is provided on a first come, first served basis.
Youth Mental Health First Aid is designed to teach parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, school staff, peers, neighbors, health and human services workers, and other caring adults how to help someone who is developing a mental health or substance use problem or crisis.
Adult Mental Health First Aid helps community members learn about risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, and gives them skills and strategies to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations.
