Like First Aid and CPR, Mental Health First Aid
helps those experiencing mental health problems before they can get professional
help and support. Mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, impulse
control problems, and misuse of alcohol and other drugs are very common in the
United States. More than one in four American adults will have a mental health
problem in a year.
The National Council on Community Behavioral Healthcare has
begun working with centers throughout the nation, including COMCARE, to
implement Mental Health First Aid to arm the public with skills to help
individuals who are developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental
health crisis. The clinical and qualitative evidence behind the program
demonstrates that it helps the public better identify, understand and respond to
signs of mental illness, thus improving outcomes for individuals experiencing
these illnesses. The program is designed for non-clinically trained individuals
and equips them with information and basic skills they can use to help adults
experiencing a mental health problem or crisis. The course also includes an
overview of the major mental illnesses and their treatments.
