Below are testimonials from Baylor faculty and staff who completed the course this year.
"The Mental Health First Aid class significantly improved my confidence and readiness to respond calmly and appropriately to people experiencing a mental health crisis. I have used what I've learned and I'm so grateful for the training as a practical way to love my neighbors. It's well worth your time and signifies a meaningful investment in yourself as well as your friends, family, colleagues, and community."
- Daniel Adams, Academic Support Specialist
"The Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) course was very helpful. As a registered nurse, I have previous training in the assessment and care of individuals affected by mental health issues. However, I really appreciate the straightforward and practical approach presented in the MHFA course. The 5-step ALGEE Action Plan provides a framework for safely and effectively rendering aid to someone going through a mental health challenge. I enjoyed interacting with faculty & staff from a variety of Baylor departments and programs; this was an added bonus, especially since I work at the School of Nursing in Dallas and don't get this opportunity enough!"
- Jeanne Carey, Director of the Simulation Center - School of Nursing
"We all know that life can throw trials our way and leave us, our peers, and loved ones in unexpected circumstances. With that in mind, I wanted to be sure that my students, colleagues, family, and friends could count on me to be a reliable and trustworthy source of help to them. The Mental Health First Aid certification program allowed me to gain knowledge of potential signs of mental health distress and feel confident in providing support and resources to those who may be in need around me. I highly recommend the certification course to all faculty and staff, especially those who interact with students on a daily basis."
