Mental Health First Aid is a national training program designed to help participants identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders within their communities.

In the Texas Panhandle, PBHA is working to make Mental Health First Aid as common as CPR so we can better support the approximately 1 in 5 adults who suffer from behavioral health issues.

To register in a Mental Health First Aid course, contact Shawrlette Uy at These classes are free of charge.
