Sometimes, first aid isn't a bandage, or CPR, or the Heimlich, or calling 911.
Sometimes, first aid is YOU!
Someone you know could be experiencing a mental illness or crisis. You can help them. You are more likely to encounter someone - friend, family member, coworker, neighbor, or member of the community - in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to people with the signs and symptoms of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self-help care.
Sometimes, the best first aid is you. Take the course, save a life, strengthen your community.
