Mental Health First Aid
Just as CPR training helps non-medical professionals assist an individual following a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid (MHRA) training helps an individual who does not have clinical training to assist someone experiencing a mental health crisis. MHFA participants will learn to apply a single strategy in helping someone through a variety of situations including a panic attack, engaging with someone who may be suicidal, supporting a person experiencing psychosis and helping an individual who has overdosed. In practicing the intervention strategy, MHFA participants learn the risk factors and warning signs of specific illnesses such as anxiety, depression, psychosis and addiction; engage in experiential activities that build understanding of the impact of illness; and learn information about evidence-based treatment and support-ultimately building participants ‘mental health literacy.’ The goal of MHFA is to increase mental health literacy.
