Mental Health First Aid for Adults

October 13, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

  • One in five American adults experience a mental health disorder in a single year.
  • Almost half of all American adults will experience a mental illness during the course of their lifetime.
  • More than 20 million Americans ages 12 and older will face an addiction.

What is Mental Health First Aid? Mental Health First Aid USA is an evidence-based training that teaches participants how to identify, understand and respond to someone who is experiencing a mental health or substance-use challenge. Click here to download the Mental Health for Adults one-pager.

What is a Mental Health First Aider? A Mental Health First Aider, also called a First Aider, is a person who has successfully completed a Mental Health First Aid training. First Aiders have empathy for people living with mental illness and substance use problems. Their increased mental health literacy enables them to identify risk factors and warning signs for mental health and substance use challenges, confidence to provide strategies to help someone in crisis and non-crisis situations, and knowledge of where to turn for help.

How Mental Health First Aid for Adults Can Help:

  • Addresses common mental health concerns encountered by adults.
  • Reduces stigmas.
  • Teaches strategies for family members, friends and peers to recognize the signs and symptoms of mental health or substance use challenges and offer support.
  • Offers self-help strategies for staying mentally well.
