Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Training

  • Quincy Community Action Programs - Head Start (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The National Council for Behavior Health helped to bring Mental Health First Aid training to the U.S. in 2008 with the hopes of making this training as common as the traditional First Aid or CPR training. Just as CPR helps even those without clinical training assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid prepares you to interact with a person experiencing a mental health crisis. Mental Health First Aiders learn a five-step action plan that guides them through the process of reaching out and offering appropriate support (https://www.mentalhealthfirstaid.org/about/ ).
