AEC Teachers & Mental Health First-Aid

ASPIRA Early College High School staff were trained in ‪#‎MentalHealthFirstAid‬ - an in-person, evidence-based training that teaches participants how to help people developing a mental illness or in a crisis. This initiative made national headlines after First Lady Michelle Obama took the training herself. After completing this course, AEC teachers will be certified for three years.
