Mental Health First Aid: Minutes Matter

Setup

The trauma associated with natural disasters, refugee flight, teenage bullying, or gun violence can endure for a lifetime if appropriate mental health services are not provided. Just as we don’t wait for a wound to become infected before providing treatment, so too we must act quickly to curb emotional damage before it festers. Models of mental health first aid training show us how we can equip first responders, teachers, work colleagues, teen peers, and others in the community to recognize someone at risk, provide early support, listen without judgement, encourage self-help strategies, and offer connections to timely, professional intervention.
