Certified Mental Health First Aiders

MHFA logo

Luther College Counseling Service provides Adult Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) certification training to any interested Luther employee.  Counselor Stu Johnston is a certified instructor in Adult MHFA, Youth MHFA, and Child MHFA and counselor Bobbi-Jo Molokken is a certified instructor in Adult MHFA. 

Adult Mental Health First Aid certification involves participating in an 8 hour training focused on how to recognize and respond to a mental health crisis.   It teaches how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. The training gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial help and support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem or experiencing a crisis.
