YOUTH Mental Health First Aid (Philadelphia)

NO-COST Mental Health First Aid® Trainings in Philadelphia

Sponsored by the City of Philadelphia, Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual DisAbility Services. 

Similar to CPR, Aiders learn basic skills to help another person in need of support. Mental Health First Aid teaches how to assist a person who may be struggling with mental health or addiction challenges, and what to do if the person you are helping is in crisis.   

Research shows that people are more likely to assist another person after this training, and more likely to recommended treatment resources.This training has also shown to decrease stigma toward people with behavioral health challenges.  

All class participants leave this course with a comprehensive manual, and a three-year national certification as a Mental Health First Aider.
