Similar to ‘First Aid’ and CPR, ‘Mental Health First Aid’ teaches you how to help those experiencing mental health problems until professional help is available.
All are welcome. This is a non-clinical public education training for anyone.
Mental Health First Aid

Fairbanks Community Behavioral Health Center
3830 S. Cushman Street
Eliminating stigma and improving knowledge about mental illness saves lives.
We are all three times more likely to encounter someone experiencing a mental health problem than a heart attack. Know what to do! Mental health problems – such as depression, anxiety, impulse control and misuse of alcohol and other drugs – are shockingly common in the United States. In fact, more than one in four American adults will have a mental health problem in a year. The National Council on Community Behavioral Healthcare has begun working with communities throughout the nation, including the Trust Training Cooperative (TTC), to implement Mental Health First Aid to arm the public with skills to help individuals who are developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. For more information on Mental Health First Aid, visit www.mentalhealthfirstaid.org.
Those who wish to attend must register through the TTC Learning Management System (LMS) at https://www.ttclms.org/class_detail.php?z_classid=103666
Phone: (907) 264-6228
The Trust Training Cooperative (TTC) promotes career development opportunities for direct service workers and their supervisors engaged with Mental Health Trust Beneficiaries, by ensuring that technical assistance and training is accessible and coordinated. The TTC is grant funded by the Mental Health Trust Authority and University of Alaska Anchorage Center for Human Development.
