Mental Health First Aid Registration


Sometimes, first aid isn't a bandage, or CPR, or the Heimlich, or calling 911.


Sometimes, first aid is YOU!

Someone you know could be experiencing a mental illness or crisis. You can help them.


You are more likely to encounter someone experiencing a mental health crisis than someone having a heart attack. Mental Health First Aid teaches you about common warning signs and risk factors for mental health problems and provides a five-step action plan and resources for helping someone in crisis.

Whether you are a first responder, teacher, faith community leader, human resources professional, parent, employer, co-worker,or caring community member, these two-day certification courses have information everyone can use.

There are four Mental Health First Aid courses currently available for open enrollment:

  • Adult Mental Health First Aid, in English
  • Adult Mental Health First Aid, in Spanish
  • Youth Mental Health First Aid, in English
  • Older Adults Mental Health First Aid, in English

Our Mental Health First Aid for Higher Ed and Mental Health First Aid for Public Safety classes are currently only available by request. Please fill out our request form to set up a custom class.

Visit our Mental Health First Aid page for more details about these courses. When registering below, please be careful to select the correct course.

There is a $25 materials fee for these two-day courses. Fairfax County government employees may attend free of charge.

Scholarships may be available to those in need of financial assistance.

After you complete the online registration, you will receive an email confirmation which includes mailing information for where to send your payment.

Please note: If you have previously registered for a course, but do not see the course listed below, that means the course has since filled up. When a class becomes full, it no longer shows on this page. Please email Lori Naveda if you have a question about a previous registration.

CANCELATION POLICY: If Fairfax County declares Unscheduled Leave, the training will automatically be canceled and rescheduled at a later date.



In addition to courses that are available for individual enrollment, you can also request a customized group Mental Health First Aid course.
