What Is Youth Mental Health First Aid?

Youth Mental Health First Aid is a public education program which introduces participants to the unique risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems in adolescents, builds understanding of the importance of early intervention, and most importantly – teaches individuals how to help a youth in crisis or experiencing a mental health or substance use challenge. Mental Health First Aid uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to assess a mental health crisis; select interventions and provide initial help; and connect young people to professional, peer, social, and self-help care.

Who Should Take This Course?

This course is designed to provide basic, first aid-level training to adults who regularly interact with adolescents, but may also be appropriate for older adolescents (16 and older) so as to encourage youth peer to peer interaction. Anyone who regularly works or interacts with youth – teachers, athletic coaches, mentors, juvenile justice professionals – may find the course content useful. The core Mental Health First Aid course has been successfully offered to a variety of audiences including hospital staff, employers and business leaders, faith communities, law enforcement, and the general public.

Can I attend without registering?

As this is a certification course, registration is required in order to attend.

There are no more registrations available, can I still sign up?

Once all available registrations are used, you may sign up to be notified if a seat becomes available.  If there are no cancellations, we will notify you when the next community training is scheduled.

What if I have a scheduling conflict after I register for the course?
