Studies have shown that training in mental health first aid can improve a person’s knowledge about and attitudes toward mental health. It can also help boost their support for those dealing with mental health issues.

A meta-analysis conducted by researchers supported the effectiveness of mental health first aid training. It found that it can improve a person’s understanding of mental health and provide appropriate support to those with a mental health problem.

 The training participants were able to improve their knowledge about mental health first aid and recognize the various treatments available. They also reduced their level of stigma.

There are various international guidelines on how to approach mental health first aid. This training is also included in a government program that tracks the effectiveness of various programs and practices.

Although it’s widely believed that training in mental health first aid can improve the quality of life for people with mental health issues, a review conducted in 2015 found no evidence of its effectiveness.
