Mental Health First Aid for First Responders
Mental Health First Aid, sometimes called “Adult Mental Health First Aid,” is a skills-based training that teaches people how to identify, understand and respond to signs and symptoms of mental health or substance use challenges in adults ages 18 and over. The evidence behind the program demonstrates that it builds mental health literacy, providing an action plan that teaches first responders to safely and responsibly identify and address a potential mental health or substance use challenge.
