You must be able to attend all three training sessions (Tuesday, Sept. 19, Wednesday, Sept. 20, and Thursday, Sept. 21 from 4:30-7 p.m.) in order to participate in this training.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a skills-based training course for anyone who wants to make their community healthier, happier, and safe. 

Through this training, you will learn:

  • How to describe and talk about mental health, openly and non-judgmentally.
  • Approach, reassure, and support fellow RIT community members when they are struggling with their mental health.
  • Exploration of what self-care looks like for you and practical applications of self-care.

If you have any questions, or you need clarification on anything, please do not hesitate to email Beau Gibbs at  

You will need to complete 15 minutes of pre-work BEFORE attending the training.

Thank you for your commitment to making RIT a more mentally well campus.
