The training helps you identify, understand and respond to signs of addictions and mental illnesses. Participants receive a certificate upon course completion.

Once you are enrolled in a training by our facilitators, you will be invited to create a Learner's Portal with MHFA to complete  pre-work (approximately 2 hours) before your schedule training.  You will also receive confirmation of the room or zoom link and other details once completed.
