Description

YOUTH Mental Health First Aid

For Adults Assisting Young People

A young person you know could be experiencing a mental health or substance use problem. Learn an action plan to help.

Who Should Take The Course? Anyone 18 or older can take Youth Mental Health First Aid, but it is recommended for those who regularly have contact with young people ages 12-18+ - teachers, coaches, social workers, faith leaders and other caring citizens.

Youth Mental Health First Aid USA is an 8 hour 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 teaches individuals how to help an adolescent in crisis or experiencing a mental health 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.
