Mental Health First Aid Training for CSU Department Chairs and Faculty

The National Council for Mental Wellbeing offers Mental Health First Aid certification training, which teaches how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental health illnesses and substance use disorders.

The CSU Innovative Teaching and Learning Programs offers online sessions especially for faculty that are facilitated by CSU faculty who are certified Mental Health First Aid instructors. Our facilitation team includes Dr. Bonnie Gasior (Long Beach), Darci Strother (San Marcos), and Professor Sailesh Maharjan (San Bernardino).

The online training consists of approximately 2 hours of self-paced, asynchronous preparatory work, followed by two synchronous half-day sessions, each 3.5 hours, including breaks.
