Check out the National Council for Mental Wellbeing's website that states, "MHFA has one clear and simple goal: to give individuals the skills to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental health and substance use challenges and provide initial help and support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use crisis.

Good news … it’s working!

Over the past decade, more than 45 peer-reviewed studies have documented the efficacy of MHFA among various populations across the United States.

Studies show that individuals trained in Adult MHFA have:
  • Increased mental health literacy, including knowing the signs, symptoms and risk factors of mental health and substance use challenges.
  • The ability to identify multiple types of professional and self-help resources for individuals with a mental health or substance use challenge.
  • Increased confidence/self-efficacy and likelihood to help an individual in distress.
  • Reduced stigma and increased empathy toward individuals with mental health challenges.
  • Increased likelihood to seek therapy or mental health care for themselves.
  • Correct application of MHFA skills during a simulation."
