KOALA_edited.png

Mental Health First Aid is an early intervention public education program. It teaches people how to identify, understand and respond to signs and symptoms of a mental health or substance use challenge in youth and adults ages 18 and over. The evidence behind the program demonstrates that it builds mental health literacy, providing an action plan that teaches people to safely and responsibly identify and address a potential mental health or substance use challenge. Mental Health First Aid, sometimes called Adult Mental Health First Aid, is available in English and Spanish.
