Why Take This Yoga-based Mental Health First Aid Module?

Mental illness is on the rise. There is a growing chance that you will encounter mental illness in your family, community or in a yoga class. This course does two things: it trains you to use yoga to reduce the chances of becoming mentally ill AND it qualifies you as a Mental Health First Aider. By taking this course and becoming a MHFAider, you will be better able to support people around you, and yourself.
