Mental Health First Aid Classes

Youth & Adult Mental Health First Aid Classes are NOW OPEN

1 in 5 people will have a mental health crisis this year.  Muskegon has a suicide rate that is higher than the national average and higher than the state average.  The 3rd leading cause of death among young people is suicide.

This class will teach you how to recognize the signs and symptoms of a mental health problem, how to intervene in a meaningful way during a crisis, how to recognize the warning signs and risks factors surrounding suicide, and so much more.


It was nearly 1 year ago that we began instructing people in Mental Health First Aid.  Now we are beginning to hear stories back about how people have used the techniques that they have learned in this class to help someone in a crisis.  Some of those stories include helping people who were suicidal.  With 13 nationally certified instructors in Muskegon County, more than any other county in the state, we are working tirelessly to educate as many people in our community as possible.

We have just added two more classes for youth.  (And others for adult are in our calendar)!

Learn this for yourself.  Bring it to your family.  Change your community!
