What is Mental Health First Aid?
Mental Health First Aid is the initial help given to a person showing symptoms of mental illness or in a mental health crisis (severe depression, psychosis, panic attack, suicidal thoughts and behaviors, etc.) until appropriate professional or other help, including peer and family support, can be engaged. This 8-hour course prepares families, caregivers, educators, school staff, clergy, 4-H leaders, scout leaders, neighbors, health and human services workers and other caring citizens how to help individuals who may be experiencing a mental health challenge or crisis. This course is delivered by certified Mental Health First Aid USA instructors.
