Philadelphia's Mental Health First Aid Initiative

MHFA in Philadelphia

Mental Health First Aid originated in Australia and was adapted for use in the United States in 2008.  Philadelphia is one of the first metropolitan areas in the U.S. to implement MHFA on a large scale.  Mayor Nutter’s goal to improve the individual well-being of Philadelphians is furthered by the citywide implementation of MHFA. Philadelphians will be healthier and better educated about behavioral health challenges, and better able to offer assistance to anyone they know who might be experiencing or developing behavioral health challenges.
