Sometimes, first aid isn’t a bandage or CPR,

Sometimes, first aid is YOU!

A young person you know could be experiencing
A mental health challenge or crisis…
You can help them…

You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, student, neighbor, or member of the community — in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to young people showing signs of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self help care. Anyone can take the 8-hour Youth Mental Health First Aid course, but it is ideally designed for adults who work with young people, ages 12-18 — teachers, coaches, leaders of faith communities, social workers, and other caring citizens.

Sometimes, the best first aid is you!

  • Take the course
  • Save a life
  • Strengthen your community

This FREE training includes:

  • 8 hour training
  • Course book
  • Lunch, Snacks & Beverages
