Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an empirically backed public education and prevention tool. It improves the public’s knowledge of mental health problems and connects people with care for their mental health problems.
Mental Health First Aid is very similar to traditional First Aid and CPR, in that MHFA was developed to provide help to a person developing a mental health problem or experiencing a crisis until professional treatment is obtained or the crisis resolves. During the MHFA training, participants will learn a five-step action plan to help loved ones, colleagues, neighbors, and others to cope with mental health problems.
The training is 8-hours which can be completed in one day or may be divided up into two 4 hour days. Continuing Educations Units (CEUs) are available for certain professions.
