Mental Health First Aid
Similar to traditional First Aid and CPR, Mental Health First Aid is help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or experiencing a crisis until professional treatment is obtained or the crisis resolves.
Mental Health First Aid is an empirically backed public education and prevention tool- the training improves the public’s knowledge of mental health problems and connects people with care for their mental health problems.
