In any given year, nearly 1 in 4 adults in the US experience a mental illness or an addiction.  Lifetime prevalence is 1 out of 2. This training teaches strategies for family members, friends and peers to recognize the signs and symptoms of mental health or substance use challenges and offer support which helps to reduce stigma and discrimination and increase help-seeking.

Mental Health First Aid is a skills-based training that teaches participants how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness and substance use disorders. This training gives you the tools you need to reach out and provide initial support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem and help connect them to the appropriate care.
