What is Mental Health First Aid (MHFA)? 

You are more likely to encounter someone—friend, family member, or neighbor—in an emotional crisis than someone having a heart attack. Just as CPR teaches you how to respond to someone in a medical crisis, MHFA prepares participants to assist someone experiencing a mental health crisis. You will learn situational skills to intervene and help someone experiencing a mental health problem. You will learn: 

  • Signs and symptoms of mental illness 
  • Risk and safety assessment 
  • Intervention strategies
