Mental Health First Aid
Mental Health First Aid is a national evidence-based, public education and prevention curriculum. Similar to traditional First Aid and CPR, Mental Health First Aid is assistance provided to a person developing a mental health problem, or experiencing a mental health crisis until professional help is available. Mental Health First Aid is designed to improve the public’s knowledge of mental health issues, and connect people with care for their mental health needs.  Upon completion, participants have a better understanding of the impact mental illness has on a person, their family, and their community. Mental Health First Aid training is appropriate for many populations including:
Support Services Include:
  • Hospitals and Health Care Centers
  • Faith Communities
  • Schools
  • Law Enforcement/First Responders
  • Direct-care Home Staff
  • Families and other caring citizens
  • Mental Health Authority employees
  • Policymakers
