Mental Health First Aid

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.
