Event description

Description

Take a class. Save a life. Strengthen your community.

Youth Mental Health First Aid is for anyone who works with youth and young adults ages 12-18 and 18-25 who may be in the early stages of a mental health problem or experiencing a crisis. MHFA can save a life, just like CPR can save someone who is having a heart attack.

Why is MHFA important?

Mental illness is common.

Approximately 1 in 5 young people ages 13-18 experience mental illness. 50% of mental health issues can be identified by age 14.

Who should take MHFA?

Anyone! MHFA gives people the tools they need to help friends, family, colleagues and community members. It answers key questions like "What do I do?" and "Where can someone find help?"

What will you learn in MHFA?

  • Warning signs and risk factors of mental illness common among youth young adults
  • Information on signs and symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma, psychosis and substance use disorder
  • A 5-step action plan to help youth and young adults showing signs of mental illness or crisis
  • Professional and self-help resources
  • A better understanding of the importance of early intervention

Disclaimer

  • Unfortunately, lunch is not provided but we do provide coffee and light snacks throughout the training, as well as an hour lunch break.
  • We require a minimum of ten registered participants for an MHFA training to occur.
