Mental Health First Aid is a groundbreaking public education program that helps the public identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. Those who complete the course certify as Mental Health First Aiders, having learned a 5-step action plan encompassing the skills, resources and knowledge to help an individual connect with appropriate professional, peer, social, and self-help care.
Mental Health First Aid, offered as an interactive 8-hour course for helping both adults and youth, introduces participants to the risk factors and signs/symptoms of mental health problems, builds understanding of their impact, and overviews common treatments.
