Mental Health First Aid: Building Safety and Reducing Stigma

One in four adults will suffer from a mental health illness in any given year, according to the National Council for Community Behavioral Health Care. The council’s Mental Health First Aid program is a nationally recognized eight-hour training to teach how to help people in an emergency situation stemming from mental illness or substance abuse. A few states have begun to adopt the program to help first responders and others handle mental health and substance abuse crises.

In this webinar, Rebecca Farley and Bryan Gibb from the National Council for Community Behavioral Health Care explain the program and how states can benefit.
