Mental Health First Aid USA

Mental Health First Aid is a public education program that introduces participants to risk factors and warning signs of

mental illnesses, builds understanding of their impact, and overviews common supports. This 8-hour course uses

role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to offer initial help in a mental health crisis and connect persons to

the appropriate professional, peer, social, and self-help care. The program also teaches the common risk factors

and warning signs of specific types of illnesses, like anxiety, depression, substance use, bipolar disorder, eating

disorders, and schizophrenia.

Mental Health First Aid is included on the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s National

Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP).
