What is Youth Mental Health First Aid?
Youth Mental Health First Aid is a public education program that introduces the risk factors and warning signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders in youth, builds understanding of their impact and reviews common support options. The eight-hour course uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to offer initial help in a mental health crisis and connect persons to the appropriate professional, peer, social and self-care help.


Who Should Attend?
The course is designed for adults who regularly interact with adolescents (ages 12-18), including teachers, school staff, coaches, youth group leaders, parents or anyone interested in increasing their mental health literacy about youth. Please note, this class may be too basic for those who work in mental health services.


Lunch will be provided free of charge. Let us know if you have any specific dietary needs.


This class, valued at $170 per person, is sponsored and funded by the Fairview Foundation and Fairview Community Health.
