Mental Health First Aid is an international training program proven to be effective. Peer-reviewed studies show that individuals trained in the program
- Grow their knowledge of signs, symptoms, and risk factors of mental illnesses and addictions
- Can identify multiple types of professional and self-help resources for individuals with a mental illness or addiction
- Increase their confidence in and likelihood to help an individual in distress
- Show increased wellness themselves
Studies also show that the program reduces the social distance created by negative attitudes and perceptions of individuals with mental illness.
For some members of the military, the battle doesn’t end when they leave the battlefield. Mental Health First Aid for Military Members, Veterans, and their families teaches people how to notice and respond to signs of mental health and addiction challenges with a specific focus on the cultural factors related to military life.
