Support Each Other. Earn Your Be There Certificate.

FIDM Partners with Jack.org and Born This Way Foundation


Learn how to better support yourself and the mental health of others with the Be There Certificate, a free online mental health course created by Jack.org in partnership with Born This Way Foundation. Be there when it matters; learn how today.

Here’s how:

The Be There Certificate is a free, self-paced learning online course designed to increase mental health literacy and provide you with the knowledge, skills, and confidence needed to safely support anyone who may be struggling with their mental health. It’s available in English, French, and Spanish, and provides a deep understanding of Be There’s 5 Golden Rules — a simple but actionable framework on how to recognize when someone might be struggling with their mental health, your role in supporting that person, and how to connect them to the help they deserve.
