What is mental health first aid?

Mental health first aid is the support provided to a person who may be experiencing a decline in their mental well-being or a mental health crisis.

Most people are familiar with CPR and know what to do when they are faced with a cardiac emergency. However, would you know what to do if you were faced with someone having a mental health emergency? People are experiencing an overwhelming amount of uncertainty and stress caused by COVID-19 right now, so now more than ever, it can be vital to understand the signs and symptoms of someone in a mental health crisis and knowing how to help.
