What is Mental Health First Aid
Mental Health First Aid is an interactive 8-hour course that gives people the skills to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. The evidence behind the program demonstrates that it builds mental health literacy and helps the public identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness. Participants are introduced to risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems, gain an understanding of their impact and explore common interventions and treatments.
