Obama endorses Mental Health First Aid

President Obama endorses Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) as a part of his plan “Now Is The Time”, which is enacted to help curb gun violence. MHFA, originally from Australia, is taught in training programs. It can help teachers, staff and other adults interacting with young people to recognise signs and symptoms of mental illness and to assist them with finding appropriate professional treatment.
