The Student Counseling Center is pleased to announce our next open Mental Health First Aid course! We will be meeting Tuesdays 10am-12pm on 9/20, 9/27, 10/4, 10/11. Attendance at all four sessions is required for certification. This course is open to the Tarleton Community and is provided for free by the counseling center. Contact the instructor, James Dinh, at or (254) 968-9044 to sign up or ask for more information. If this time doesn't work out for you but you are still interested feel free to contact us and with enough interest we can open up another course. 

Mental Health First Aid is a public education program that introduces participants to risk factors and warning signs of mental illnesses, builds understanding of their impact, and overviews common supports. This 8-hour course uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to offer initial help in a mental health crisis and connect persons to the appropriate professional, peer, social, and self-help care. The program also teaches the common risk factors and warning signs of specific types of illnesses, like anxiety, depression, substance use, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, and schizophrenia. 

Mental Health First Aid is included on the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP).
