Mental Health First Aid is a public education program that introduces partici-pants to risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems, builds under-standing of their impact, and overviews appropriate supports. Mental Health First Aid is offered in the form of an interactive 8-hour course which uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to offer initial help in a mental health crisis and connect people to the appropriate professional, peer, social and self-help care. Like CPR, Mental Health First aid prepares participants to interact with a person in crisis and connect the person with help.
