ADULT MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID is an in-depth training ideal for anyone who deals with the public on a regular basis. It was developed because mental health diagnoses such as depression, anxiety, impulse control and misuse of alcohol and other drugs are shockingly common in the United States. In fact, more than 1 in 4 American adults will have a mental health challenge in any given year. The National Council on Community Behavioral Healthcare has begun working with community advocates to implement MHFA that equips the public with skills to help individuals developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. The clinical and qualitative data demonstrates that this program helps the public better identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness, thus improving outcomes for individuals with these illnesses. The training is for anyone interested in learning more about symptoms of mental illness and how to respond to someone in a mental health crisis. It is open to the community.

Today is World Suicide Prevention Day, and we need your help to share a message of hope. Around the world, a million people die by suicide every year. Research shows that when people get help, most find the hope they need to stay alive, and get better. The first step is always reaching out.

World Touch Productions created this Public Service Announcement in partnership with Samaritan Counseling Center, urging those thinking about suicide to talk about it, and encouraging friends of those in crisis to reach out and offer help.

So today let's tell our friends that we'll be there for them. Be part of the solution by sharing and posting "Reach Out" to your websites and social media pages. Anything we can do to promote a message of hope just might be what saves a life.

REACH OUT! Suicide Prevention PSA
Thank you for your help.

We are here for you.
