In collaboration with the National Council for Behavioral Health (NCBH), Alliant Health Solutions is offering Mental Health First Aid certification classes to community organizations in Georgia and South Carolina.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an 8-hour course teaching attendees how to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. The training empowers participants with the necessary skills to provide initial help and support to someone who is experiencing a mental health crisis.

MHFA was first introduced in the U.S. in 2008, and more than 1 million people have received the training to date. Participants include hospital staff, healthcare employers, business leaders, community members, and more. And, on November 30th, 30 Alliant Health Solutions (AHS) employees participated in our inaugural, onsite MHFA training.

AHS is dedicated to enhancing behavioral health care, and we look forward to offering this vital certification to our community partners in the coming months. The course is valued at $170 per person, and Alliant Health Solutions is offering this training to selected organizations at no cost. If you are interested in being considered for MHFA, please contact us via MentalHealthFirstAid@AlliantHealth.org.
