Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an 8-hour class that provides people the basic tools to help someone who might be developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. MHFA can save a life, just like CPR can save someone who is having a heart attack.
Why is MHFA important?
Mental illness is common.
Approximately 1 in 5 adults experiences mental illness. 50% of mental health issues can be identified by age 14.
Who should take MHFA?
Anyone! MHFA gives people the tools they need to help friends, family, colleagues and community members. It answers key questions like "What do I do?" and "Where can someone find help?"
What will you learn in MHFA?
Warning signs and risk factors for mental illness
Information on sign and symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma, psychosis and substance use disorder
A 5-step action plan to help someone showing signs of mental illness or experiencing a crisis
Professional and self-help resources
Unfortunately, lunch is not provided but we do provide coffee and light snacks throughout the training, as well as an hour lunch break.
We require a minimum of ten registered participants for an MHFA training to occur.
For more information on Mental Health First Aid, if you’d like to host an MHFA training or to request special accommodations, please feel free to contact April Ashley Oviedo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
