Youth Mental Health First Aid Training

Youth Mental Health First Aid is an 8 hour training designed to teach parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, school staff, peers, neighbors, health and human services workers, and other caring citizens how to help an adolescent (age 12-18) who is experiencing a mental health or addictions challenge or is in crisis. Youth Mental Health First Aid is primarily designed for adults who regularly interact with young people. The course introduces common mental health challenges for youth, reviews typical adolescent development, and teaches a 5-step action plan for how to help young people in both crisis and non-crisis situations. Topics covered include anxiety, depression, substance use, disorders in which psychosis may occur, disruptive behavior disorders (including AD/HD), and eating disorders.

This training will be split up into four hour segments on 12/14 and 12/15 from 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM each day. You must attend both sessions in order to receive the certification.

Curriculum Highlights

  • Identify common mental health challenges for youth including anxiety, depression, substance use, disorders in which psychosis may occur, disruptive behavior disorders, and eating disorders.


  • Review typical adolescent development


  • Use a 5-step action plan to recognize symptoms, to offer and provide initial help, and to guide a person to the appropriate treatments and other supportive help.


  • Dispel myths about mental illness and understand the prevalence of mental illness.
