Mental Health Awareness Trainings

The MHAT program prepares and trains individuals to appropriately and safely respond to persons with mental health challenges and or disorders. As a result of mental health awareness training, individuals receive the knowledge, skills, confidence, and resources to help guide someone experiencing mental health and/or substance use challenges. Individuals trained might use these skills and resources to help others access needed mental health care from within their own families, their places of employment, their communities, or their places of worship. East Bay Regional Coalition is dedicated to providing free trainings for our community.
