Mental Health First Aid in Missouri

What is Mental Health First Aid?

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an 8-hour course that teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. The training gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial help and support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem or experiencing a crisis. As a certified Mental Health First Aider, you will know how to implement the 5-Step MHFA Action Plan.

Participants in the MHFA courses have demonstrated improved confidence in providing initial help, increased the help that is given, and reduced stigma regarding mental health disorders. These results have fostered the international adoption and adaptation of the Mental Health First Aid, originally created in Australia.
