If you’ve taken a physical first aid course; you’ve learned the skills needed to help someone experiencing a sudden illness or injury.
People can also have mental health crisis, and it is important that more people know how to provide help in these situations too.
Mental Health First Aid is a training course designed to give members of the public 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, decreases stigmatizing attitudes, and helps individuals identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness.
