  Just as CPR training helps a layperson without medical training assist an individual following a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid training helps a layperson assist someone experiencing a mental health crisis.
 Learn to:
•  Recognize the potential risk factors and warning signs for a range of mental health problems, including: depression, anxiety/trauma, psychosis and psychotic disorders, substance use disorders, and self-injury.
•   Use a 5-step action plan to help an individual in crisis connect with appropriate professional help.
•  Interpret the prevalence of various mental health disorders in the U.S. and the need for reduced negative attitudes in their communities. 
•  Apply knowledge of the appropriate professional, peer, social, and self-help resources available to help someone with a mental health problem treat and manage the problem and achieve recovery. 
•  Assess their own views and feelings about mental health problems and disorders. 

Specific topics covered include:
•  Depression,  Anxiety,  Substance Use,  Eating Disorders, Psychosis, Disruptive Behavior Disorders
