Mental Health First Aid is a training course designed to give members of the public the skills to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. The evidence behind the program demonstrates that it builds mental health literacy, decreases stigmatizing attitudes, and helps individuals identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illness. MHFA Adults Who Interact with Youth is intended for an adult audience whose primary focus is youth (aged 9-24). The course covers 6 areas:
- Mental health problems and stigma
- Substance-related disorders
- Mood-related disorders – depression, suicide, self-injury, and more
- Anxiety and trauma-related disorders – anxiety and panic attacks, and more
- Eating disorders
- Psychotic disorders
- Recognize the symptoms of mental health problems or crises as they develop in youth, including eating disorders and non-suicidal self-injury.
- Provide initial help when facing a mental health problem or crisis.
- Guide youth and/or adults who support them toward appropriate professional help.
- Learn how to accommodate young people who are in distress or are recovering from a crisis.
