As federal grant opportunities for projects like Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) are announced, we will share details here.
Mental Health First Aid USA is managed and operated by the National Council for Mental Wellbeing and the Missouri Department of Mental Health. The foundation of the curriculum was built on the evidence-based Mental Health First Aid training and research program in Australia. The Australian program was developed using the consensus of international expert panels involving mental health consumers, caregivers and professionals.
There are several national local, state, federal or philanthropic resources with grant opportunities that may be appropriate for supporting Mental Health First Aid efforts.
