Youth mental health first aid

Youth Mental Health First Aid is an 8 hour course designed for adults who regularly interact with young people (parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, school staff, peers, neighbors, health and human services workers, and other caring citizens) which focuses on how to help an adolescent (age 12-18) who is experiencing a mental health or addictions challenge or is in crisis. The course introduces common mental health challenges for youth, reviews typical adolescent development, and teaches a 5-step action plan for how to help young people in both crisis and non-crisis situations.

Adult Mental Health First Aid program is an interactive session, which runs 8 hours, appropriate for anyone 18 years and older who wants to learn how to help a person who may be experiencing a mental health related crisis or problem. Mental Health First Aid introduces participants to risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems, builds understanding of their impact and overviews common treatments. Mental Health First Aid aims to become as common as CPR/First Aid and has the potential to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness, improve mental health literacy, and empower individuals.
