MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID
Mental Health First Aid is an international program proven to be effective. Peer-reviewed studies published in Australia, where the program originated, show that individuals trained in the program: • Grow their knowledge of signs, symptoms and risk factors of mental illnesses and addictions. • Can identify multiple types of professional and self-help resources for individuals with a mental illness or addiction. • Increase their confidence in and likelihood to help an individual in distress. • Show increased mental wellness themselves. Studies also show that the program reduces the social distance created by negative attitudes and perceptions of individuals with mental illnesses.
