Mental Health First Aid For Older Adults (MHFA)

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) for Older Adults is designed to address the specific mental health and substance disorders common in the aging population. By 2030, adults over the age of 65 will account for nearly 20 percent of the U.S. population. In older adults, symptoms such as apathy, sleep disturbances and appetite changes can be attributed to physical health conditions, dementias or even as a normal part of the aging process.
