Instructors are on the frontlines of the program and train people in their communities in Mental Health First Aid. Certified Adult and Youth Instructors are required to teach the course at least three times per year.

Instructors also create, market, and coordinate their classes while supporting their learners along the way. Instructors teach from a national curriculum, tailor discussions to their participants, and compile a list of local resources for help.
