Mental Health First Aid is an 9 hour course that teaches participants how to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. It provides a basic understanding of what different mental illnesses and addictions are, how they can affect a person’s daily life, and what helps individuals experiencing these challenges get well. The course helps participants identify, understand, and respond to signs of addictions and mental illnesses. Mental Health First Aid teaches about recovery and resiliency – the belief that individuals experiencing these challenges can and do get better, and use their strengths to stay well. The course trains participants to help people who may be experiencing a mental health problem or crisis, and participants that successfully complete the training receive a three year certification as a “Mental Health First Aider.”
