The training requires completion of 2 hours of self-paced online course preparation and 4 hours of virtual training lead by two certified MHFA instructors.

The 2-hour online training needs to be completed before the virtual training.
The value of this course is $150. We are able to offer the course for $30 because of grant funding for the program. Participants who successfully complete all components of the training (pre-work, course) will receive a hard copy of the MHFA Manual.
