Mental Health First Aid Training
AMHP is providing Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Certification Training in communities across the country.
MHFA is an evidence-based program which introduces participants to risk factors and warning signs of common mental health illnesses like anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, and addiction.
It uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to assess a mental health crisis; select interventions and provide initial help; and connect persons to professional, peer, social, and self-help care.
The training is appropriate for a wide variety of audiences, including but not limited to: community leaders, clergy, parents, youth directors, law enforcement personnel, educators, and medical providers.
