Mental Health First Aid
Most of us would know how to help if we saw someone having a heart attack — we’d start CPR or call 9-1-1. But too few of us would know how to respond if we saw someone having a panic attack or showing signs of alcoholism.
Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance use challenge or crisis. It takes the fear and hesitation out of starting conversations about mental health or substance use by improving understanding and providing an action plan that teaches people to safely and responsibly identify and address a potential issue.
With evidence-based programs designed specifically for adults, teens, caregivers, veterans, law enforcement, EMS personnel, school faculty and more, there’s a Mental Health First Aid course for anyone looking to make a difference in their community.
Through Mental Health First Aid, more than 2.6 million people are trained to help their peers, neighbors, colleagues and friends. Join this community and #BeTheDifference today.
