Mental Health First Aid is the help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. The first aid is given until appropriate professional treatment is received or until the crisis is resolved.
Mental Health First Aid does NOT teach people to be therapists. It teaches people to recognize the symptoms of mental health problems and provides information on how to get help.
