Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an eight-hour training course designed to give members of the public key skills to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. Just as CPR training helps a person without medical training assist an individual following a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid training helps community members assist someone experiencing a mental health crisis. Participants who complete this course will receive a 3-year certification on Mental Health First Aid offered through the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare. The evidence behind Mental Health First Aid demonstrates that it makes people feel more comfortable managing a crisis situation and builds mental health literacy - helping the public identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness. Specifically, studies found that those who trained in Mental Health First Aid have greater confidence in providing help to others, greater likelihood of advising people to seek professional help, improved concordance with health professionals about treatments, and decreased stigmatizing attitudes.
