Many mental health disorders often begin during adolescence. This community-focused training provides information on identifying the signs and symptoms of mental health disorders/crises in youth, as well as risk factors and protective factors for this population. The 5-step Mental Health First Aid action plan is explored and applied to youth mental health disorders and crisis situations through the use of discussions, case examples and videos. This action plan includes approach skills, effective communication of concern and support, and connecting youth and families to professional and community resources.
