“The positive impact that Mental Health First Aid has had in schools is clear. The training helps teachers and administrators recognize certain mental health challenges that many of their students face. David explained that the training is especially useful to bridge the gap between schools and other community resources that could treat and support a student who is experiencing a mental health issue.”
