Netsmart Associates Become Mental Health First Aid Instructors

By Netsmart

At Netsmart, we invest in our associates by providing educational opportunities to enhance their personal and professional lives. In July 2016, we began offering the Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) program, an 8-hour course that gives people the skills to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis.

To date, we have presented 13 training sessions to nearly 300 associates with the goal to have 90% of all associates certified. Netsmart associates Julie Hiett and Tricia Zerger went one step further and recently completed training to become certified MHFA instructors where they underwent vigorous training with others from around the country. They attributed their interest in becoming instructors to their passion for serving others.

Learn more about Tricia and Julie’s journey on Netsmife.
