MHFA/YMHFA                                             $1200/30 participants

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a course that teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. The training gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial help and support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem or experiencing a crisis.


How to Spot an Overdose and Administer Naloxone             $250

2 hours; includes one box of naloxone, more upon request

Review current drug trends and local and national pertinent data and learn how to spot an overdose and administer naloxone in both forms (intramuscular and nasal).


How To Care                                                     $300/30 participants

A four-hour, curriculum-based educational program that teaches adult caregivers (teachers, foster parents, extended family members, etc.) to better understand the dynamics of a family system impacted by substance use disorder, the lasting effects of this experience on children’s physical and emotional development, and the best approach to help them achieve their full potential. How to Care can be offered on-site, or as a web-based training for organizations.


Trauma Informed Care                                                                 $500

Organizations need to have a complete picture of a person’s life situation — past and present — in order to provide effective services with a healing orientation. Adopting trauma-informed practices can potentially improve engagement, treatment adherence, and health outcomes, as well as provider and staff wellness. It can also help reduce avoidable care and excess costs for both the health care and social service sectors.

2 hour educational program designed to teach lay and professional “gatekeepers” the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to respond.

This course prepares teachers, school counselors, prevention specialists, SRO, police officers, community youth educators, and other program providers to effectively implement prevention education activities found in the Botvin, evidence-based, LifeSkills Training Program. This cost reflects agencies that have purchased their own curriculum ahead of time. If First Call purchases the materials (for one grade level of the audience’s choosing) the cost is $500.
