HCCC MHCW Mental Health Initiatives

Staff and faculty are usually the first people a student will approach when stressed; how one responds can deter or help a student connect with the appropriate resources. We want to challenge the HCCC community to participate in these training opportunities, learn how to use correct language and develop skills to support your students.

Mental health initiatives included:
Training staff, faculty, and students on Mental Health First Aid, QPR (Questions, Persuade, Refer), and JED campus.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA)
