Mental illness is common. Approximately 1 in 5 adults experience mental illness and
50% of mental health issues can
be identified by age 14.

Who should take MHFA?

Anyone who wants to help someone in crisis. You can make a difference.

What will you learn in MHFA?

  • Warning signs, symptoms and risk factors of mental illness
  • Information on depression, anxiety, trauma, psychosis and substance use disorder
  • A 5-step action plan to help someone in crisis or showing signs of mental illness
  • Professional and self-help resource
