Mental Health First Aid
NEW! Mental Health America of Fort Bend County is now certified to offer the Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) course! Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart
attack, Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a
mental health or substance use-related crisis. In the Mental Health
First Aid course, you learn risk factors and warning signs for mental
health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in
both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help. For more information on how to register in this course or how to schedule a Mental Health First Aid course for your organization, please call 281-207-2480 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
