** Mental Health First Aid Training brought to you by Stockton University’s Suicide Prevention Team in partnership with The Mental Health Association in Atlantic County***
Mental Health First Aid was originally created in Australia in 2001, brought to this country in 2008 and administered by the National Council for Behavioral Health. The hope is that MHFA will be as common as First/Aid and CPR in the coming years. 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.
Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour training program that teaches participants a five-step action plan to assist someone with an emerging mental health crisis or disorder. The curriculum covers the most common mental health problems in the US and teaches participants how to assess a situation, select and implement appropriate interventions, and secure appropriate care for an individual experiencing a mental health problem.
