"Mental Health Facilitator (MHF)

Education and Training

The Mental Health Facilitator (MHF) program is designed to improve access to mental health care in a given community by educating and training community members from diverse backgrounds.

The intent is not to create a new mental health profession, but rather to provide individuals with the tools and skills necessary to:

  • Identify mental health needs.

  • Support those in need of mental health care.

  • Work with existing care resources.

  • Make referrals to mental health professionals as needed.

A Collaborative Program

The MHF program is introduced when requested by local mental health experts or other community members. To ensure cultural appropriateness, the training program can be contextualized and translated to fit cultural norms." (source:
