Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a skills-based training course that teaches participants to identify, understand and respond to mental health and substance use challenges. Certified MHFA instructors are trained through the National Council for Well Being. Optum Idaho pays for all class registration, training materials and trainers for any adult Idahoan who wants to be certified in knowing how to professionally support an individual experiencing a mental health or substance use disorder crisis in their community.
