Mental Health First Aid
It’s easy to tell when someone is having a heart attack, is choking or can’t breathe. But what does depression look like? Anxiety? Would you know how to respond if someone says they are considering suicide?
MHFAT is an evidence-based program that will increase our knowledge and understanding about mental health problems in order to help us recognize symptoms and reduce stigma. MHFAT encourages community members to connect and help each other because sometimes professional help is difficult to access. MHFAT will provide us a 5-step mental health first aid action plan and resources so we can properly help someone in need because it is difficult for them to do so by themselves.
