Mental Health First Aid USA is an 8-hour training to teach you how to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. The evidence behind the program demonstrates that it helps trainees identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders.
Why you should become a Mental Health First Aider?
• Be prepared - Just like you learn CPR, learn how to help someone in a mental health or substance use crisis.
• Mental illnesses are common - 1 in 5 people will experience one in a given year.
• You care - Be there for a friend, family member, or colleague. Learn how to start a conversation.
• You can help - People with mental illnesses often suffer alone. Learn when and how to step in and offer support.
