You may know CPR and the Heimlich maneuver. You can call 911. But can you administer first aid in a mental health crisis?

It's easy to tell when someone is having a heart attack, is chocking, or can't Mental Health First Aid Logobreathe. But what does depression look like? Or anxiety? What would you say to a person you know who says they are thinking about suicide? How can you help in a panic attack?

Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour training course that teaches you how to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. This  youth-oriented training uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to assess a mental health crisis; select interventions and provide initial help; connect young people to professional, peer, social, and self-help care. The course teaches participants the risk factors and warning signs of a variety of mental health challenges common among adolescents, including anxiety, depression, psychosis, eating disorders, AD/HD, disruptive behavior disorders, and substance use disorder.

People across the country - in all 50 states and the District of Columbia - are trained in Mental Health First Aid. They know how to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illness and addictions.
