Make a difference with Mental Health First Aid

2023 MHFA Collaborative Summit Highlight Video

In September, Mental Health First Aiders, Instructors, MHFA hosts, and advocates from around Ohio met at the Columbus Zoo to hone their MHFA skills, celebrate the year's successes, and look toward the future as more people become trained in MHFA. We are so grateful to all those who came to the Summit and are taking what they learned back to their communities.
