Our Mental Health Toolkit is a collection of resources to help you better understand mental health, the importance of seeking help and ways you can help those in your life work through mental health challenges. Included are resources for parents, school staff and youth. We will have additional resources for community partners soon.


The toolkit also provides you with details about our Mental Health First Aid trainings. These trainings teach you how to identify, understand and respond to signs and symptoms of mental health or substance use challenges. Similar to physical First Aid and CPR, Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a crisis until professional assistance is obtained or the crisis is resolved.
