Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is appropriate for anyone 18 years and older who wants to learn how to help a person who may
be experiencing a mental health related crisis or problem. Topics covered include anxiety, depression, psychosis, and addictions. As a certified Mental Health First Aider, you will know how to implement the five- step MHFA Action Plan.
