    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.
