Mental Health First Aid

In May 2010, 2,000+ people across the USA participated in the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare's "Understanding Mental Health" webcasts (a 4-part series on understanding depression, anxiety disorders, psychosis, and substance use disorders - all based on the content of Mental Health First Aid USA) to learn how to recognize common mental health problems and where to turn for help. Nearly 60% of webinar attendees said they were concerned about a friend, colleague, family member, or themselves being depressed. And 70% felt more confident to offer support to those in need after gaining a basic understanding through the webcast... Statistics that would undoubtedly be reflected in YOUR community.

Mental Health First Aid USA makes it easy for you to open your doors to those in your community looking for help. Offer this interactive 12-hour course specially designed to prepare members of the public to provide initial help to a person showing symptoms of mental illness or in a mental health crisis until appropriate professional, peer, or family support can be engaged.
