Mental Health First Aid
What is Mental Health First Aid?
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is designed to teach you how to give initial support to someone who may be developing a mental health problem or worsening mental illness. The course also covers what to do if someone is experiencing a mental health crisis.
By participating in the MHFA course, you will learn how to assist someone experiencing a common mental illness. You will also learn how to help someone who might be experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or a mental health crisis until appropriate professional help is received, or the crisis resolves.
Course participants learn about the signs and symptoms of the common and disabling mental health problems, how to provide initial help, where and how to get professional help, what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective, and how to provide first aid in a crisis situation.
