Mental health issues are on the rise among students in universities as well as community colleges. College can be a stressful time in many people’s lives especially when the added demand of work and family are involved. Community colleges and universities use counseling services for their mental health needs but sometimes the services are not used due to the stigma that comes along with mental health. Nursing school can be a challenging time for students because of the rigorous training and workload. This project poses to implement Mental Health First Aid Training (MHFA) for faculty and staff of a nursing program at a community college setting. The nursing faculty and staff are the front lines to students and their success. This training will prepare the faculty and staff to identify impending mental health issues and to know which steps to take during a mental health crisis until professional assistance is available.
