Mental Health First Aid is likened to CPR certification, where information is shared to assist individuals experiencing mental health or substance use-related issues. Specific risk factors and warning signs are discussed, with shared strategies to meet the needs of individuals with anxiety, depression, mood disorders, psychoses, substance abuse disorders, and trauma. The outcome focus is the development of recovery and resiliency.
