Mental Health First Aid Training (MHFA)

AMHP has also received funding for a grant to provide Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training to Muslim community leaders in the Washington, DC area.The training presents a unique opportunity to engage an audience of imams, youth directors, and community leaders in order to increase capacity to identify and triage individuals in our community who might be suffering from mental health issues. This cutting edge initiative will help fulfill a great need for improved mental health awareness within our community. MHFA is an internationally recognized curriculum supported by evidence-based research and has been offered on a limited number of occasions by and for Muslims in the United States within the past year.
