Sometimes, First Aid isn’t a bandage, or CPR, or
calling 911. Sometimes First Aid is You!
The stigma surrounding mental illness often prevents people from seeking help or even acknowledging that they need help. And if they do want help, they do not always know where to turn. Mental Health First Aid is a groundbreaking public education program that helps community members identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illness. What you say, how you say it, and how well you listen can have a profound impact on those in need. Mental Health First Aid Certification Training gives you the tools you need to help others in crisis.
