What Is Mental Health First Aid?
Mental Health First Aid is a national program that teaches people how to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illness in their community. The program is designed to give people the skills they need to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis.
The program is offered in both an adult and youth version, and there are also courses specific to veterans and older adults.
Mental Health First Aid courses are taught by certified instructors who have undergone extensive training. The courses are typically offered in a classroom setting, but there are also online and blended versions available.
Mental Health First Aid courses are open to anyone, but they may be especially helpful for people who work with or interact with people who are at risk for mental health problems, such as family members, friends, co-workers, teachers, and first responders.
Why It’s Important to Take These Courses
Mental Health First Aid courses can help you:
- Understand mental health disorders
- Identify risk factors and warning signs for mental health disorders
- Provide initial help and support to someone developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis
- Connect people to professional help and other supports
The courses are designed to be interactive, with opportunities for participants to practice the skills they are learning. After completing a Mental Health First Aid course, you will have a better understanding of mental health disorders and how to respond if you see someone who may be struggling.
We’re Raising Awareness, One Person at a Time
