Concept Clearance » Improving Outcomes Associated with Mental Health First Aid

The goal of this initiative is to further the evidence base for Mental Health First Aid (MHFA), a widely disseminated mental health course in which non-mental health professionals are trained to identify the signs and symptoms of mental illness, in order to facilitate early detection and intervention. Despite wide dissemination, there is little evidence of the program’s impact on referral to and receipt of mental health services or a reduction in mental health symptoms.
