Teaching Guides and Tools

All eCBHFA training materials can be found in the accordions below. The Core Modules consist of the five required modules for all eCBHFA volunteers and staff.

Click on the Module name to access and download the materials. Once you have assessed the community, you can access all Primary Prevention modules and topics of eCBHFA according to your community’s priority needs and concerns. Look in the Primary Prevention accordion below for the topics and tools available for download. Mix and match the content to meet the community’s needs.

The eCBHFA team continues to revise and expand the eCBHFA content to meet National Societies’ needs. The Coming Soon accordion features content from the 2009 version of CBHFA until the revised content is finalised. Check back for further updates and content!
