Congratulations to Big Brothers Big Sisters of El Paso (BBBS) on receiving funding from SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) to expand their Mental Health First Aid training to BBBS participants and the El Paso community. This grant will contribute to the ongoing support and expansion services that the Paso del Norte Health Foundation has provided for crisis prevention and improved mental health and emotional well-being.

Mental Health First Aid is a course that teaches individuals how to help someone who is developing a mental health challenge or experiencing a mental health crisis.
