The Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training is a national program that was developed in 2001. It aims to help non-clinical individuals develop skills so they may assist and respond to someone who is experiencing a mental health crisis. The 8 hour training also helps participants identify, understand and respond to the signs and symptoms of mental health and substance abuse issues.
ADAMH was the first agency to bring the Mental Health First Aid training to Ohio in 2012 and has since trained 13 organizations and over 300 people! ADAMH helps Franklin County residents find affordable, quality mental health and substance abuse and addiction services.
