We will be hosting a Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) for adults who interact with youth training for community members and those affiliated with our community.
Mental health First Aid (MHFA) is the help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. Just as physical first aid is administered to an injured person before medical treatment can be obtained, MHFA is given until the appropriate treatment is found or until the crisis is resolved.
Mental Health First Aid for adults who interact with youth (aged 12–24) discusses the following mental disorders:
- Substance use disorders
- Mood disorders
- Anxiety disorders
- Psychotic disorders
- Eating disorders
- Deliberate self-injury
