WHAT IS MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID?

The support provided to a person who may be experiencing a decline in their mental well-being, a mental health crisis, or substance use problem. Just as physical first aid is administered to a person with an injury prior to seeking more intensive medical care, MHFA is the immediate support provided to an individual until appropriate treatment is found or the crisis is resolved.
