Sometimes, first aid isn’t

a bandage,
or CPR,
or the Heimlich,
or calling 911.
 
Sometimes, first aid is YOU!

Someone you know could be experiencing a mental illness or crisis. You can help them. You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, coworker, neighbor, or member of the community — in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack.

Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to people with the signs and symptoms of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self help care.  Anyone can take the 8-hour Mental Health First Aid course — first responders, students, teachers, leaders of faith communities, human resources professionals, and caring citizens.

MH First Aiders do not take on the role of professionals — they do not diagnose or provide any counseling or therapy.  Instead, the program offers concrete tools and answers key questions, like “what do I do?” and “where can someone find help?

Sometimes, the best first aid is you.
Take the course, save a life, strengthen your community.
