We value mental wellness and strive to better understand each other.
That's why we offer Mental Health First Aid training to businesses, communities, and organizations.
Mental Health First Aid has strong evidence backing it.
Three quantitative and one qualitative studies have shown that the program:
1) improves people’s mental health,
2) increases understanding of mental health issues and treatments,
3) connects more people with care and
4) reduces stigma
Similar to traditional First Aid and CPR, Mental Health First Aid is help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or experiencing a crisis until professional treatment is obtained or the crisis resolves. People who enroll in local Mental Health First Aid courses learn a 5-step action plan to help loved ones, colleagues, neighbors and others cope with mental health or substance use problems.
