What is Mental Health First Aid?

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is the help offered to a person who may be developing a mental health problem or in crisis. The help is given until appropriate professional treatment is received or the crisis resolves.  It is designed to give members of the public key skills necessary to appropriately respond to signs of mental illness. Mental Health First Aid is an evidenced-based program. In the next ten years, it is the hope of the The National Council for Behavioral Health that Mental Health First Aid will become as common as CPR and First Aid training.
