Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aid teaches an individual how to identify, understand, and properly respond to signs of mental illnesses.

Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour training course that teaches participants how to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. People across the country – in all 50 states and the District of Columbia -are trained in Mental Health First Aid. They know how to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illnesses and addictions.

This course is delivered by certified Mental Health First Aid USA instructors who complete a 5-day training and meet certification requirements.

Mental Health First Aid Teaches:

  • Information on depression, anxiety, trauma, psychosis and substance use
  • A 5-step action plan to help someone developing a mental health concern or in crisis
  • Available evidence-based professional, peer, and self-help resources

Mental Health First Aid is listed in the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices. Studies show that individuals trained in the program increase their knowledge of signs, symptoms and risk factors of mental illness and addictions; can identify multiple types of professional and self-help resources for individuals with a mental illness or addiction; increase their confidence in and likelihood to help an individual in distress; and show reduced social distance to individuals with mental illnesses.
