Abstract

The Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) program is a training program for non-health professionals that deals with persons with a mental health crisis (Kitchener & Jorm, 2006). The MHFA-Japan team was established in 2007, and a founding member completed a MHFA training program in Melbourne, University of Australia. We consulted with Jorm and Kitchener, and started a Japanese study of the program. Providing the MHFA program for gatekeepers in Japan could help them assess risk factors and refer patients for professional care, and contribute to suicide prevention. Our team cooperated with the gatekeeper training program of the cabinet office of the Japanese government. In addition, this program is applied in instructional activities in the area of the Great East Japan Earthquake.
