Ensuring a compassionate and effective response to Marylanders in crisis

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is the initial help given to someone developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis before appropriate professional or other assistance, including peer and family support, can be engaged.

Mental Health First Aid USA is managed, operated and disseminated nationally by the National Council for Behavioral Health, Missouri Department of Mental Health and the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, in partnership with the Mental Health Association of Maryland. Only these national authorities can train and certify instructors to teach the 8-hour Mental Health First Aid USA course in local communities.
