 Mental Health First Aid for Public Safety

Mental Health First Aid USA is an 8-hour course that teaches a five-step action plan encompassing the skills, resources and knowledge to help an individual in crisis connect with appropriate professional, peer and self-help care. Participants learn the unique risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems, builds understanding of the importance of early intervention and, most importantly, teaches individuals how to help someone in crisis or experiencing a mental health challenge.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM The course is taught to police, first responders, corrections officers and other public safety audiences around the country. Mental Health First Aid for Public Safety provides officers with more response options to help them de-escalate incidents and better understand mental illnesses so they can respond to mental health related calls appropriately without compromising safety.
