Mental Health First Aid is a public education program that introduces participants to risk factors and warning signs of mental health issues, builds understanding of their impact, and provides an overview of appropriate supports. This 8-hour course uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to offer initial help in a mental health crisis and connect people to the appropriate professional, peer, social and self-help care. The program also covers common risk factors and warning signs of specific illnesses like anxiety, depression, substance use, bipolar disorder, eating disorders and schizophrenia.
